I'm going to park the bike here while I'm out of country. I have a couple favorite restaurants and haunts in town, it's nice to be back. Way more crowded than it was 2 months ago. I can't believe so much time has passed.
Walking down street someone shouts my name. It's the dive master from Komodo that had quit his job and was one his way to Australia. What good luck and an excellent excuse for drink and dance.
Tomorrow is going to be the biggest cremation ceremony in a decade. A royal and a few locals. Unfortunately I won't get to see it. The preparations are on display though. They're going to put the body at the top of this ornate construction, march it down the street with 100 carriers then torch the whole shebang!
