Canggu (pronounced Chan-goo), is a cool little surf town nestled into the rice terraces of western Bali. We arrived here after two long weeks of battling dengue fever and fell in love with its laid back vibe and international contingent of surfers and artists. I was finally beginning to feel better and could actually eat one or two small meals per day. Upon checking into our place, we found a woman in our already booked and paid room and had to evict her as the manager was not on site...not such a good start. When we finally got settled, we quickly confirmed our previous thoughts about going sans air conditioning. I am not ashamed to say we only lasted one night before moving to a hotel down the road. Of course the five howling dogs outside our window helped us in this decision. Being closer to the beach, restaurants, and shops suits us better and we could walk to Echo Beach in five minutes. The surf was breaking most of the days we were there but there was a significant amount of rain also. On those days we hung out at a mexican cantina sipping drinks and watching the world go by. Our last day there the rain unexpectedly cleared and gave us a stunning day and sunset to remember Bali by.
