18 MARCH: Heavenly golden dawn at Mertasari after a steamy night at Pura Maospahit, Singgi watching the famous black barong put a boat-load of patih into trance.

At the pondok merana the chorus of security chubs arrive, like heavily sedated, well-fed dawn raiders , and squat.
Four students chat merrily on the limestone bank, admiring the spa complex lumbung rising like giant shaggy mushrooms on the near shore.
Mega-spunk Kadek jogs past with four labradors, but refuses to be photographed
