When the 'kids' returned, we drove to our last destination to see the giant Banyan tree. But it was no longer a giant as a recent heavy windstorm brought down a large substantial bough. This tree, even before it broke, was nowhere near the size of the "natural wonder" Banyan tree which claimed to be the world's largest that Jordan and I saw in Tanna (Vanuatu) last September (see blog posting entitled Natural Wonder in September 2013). But it was cool to walk inside and take some snapshots.
From the giant tree, we took a very very remote back road that deteriorated to the point of barely passable, and that is saying something for Jordan's driving determination. We stopped for lunch high up in elevation at a resort that seemed completely out of context considering the road, however we found out that they catered to the adventurous. Off-road bush buggies galore were lined up along the roadway for rent. On the narrow inclining road, Jordan managed to maneuver the van into a tricky parking spot.
Being off season, the staff were thrilled to have us stop in for a bite to eat and all lined up to be included in a photo.
With our 6-day van tour of Bali now at an end, we were once again back at Sea Turtle. Aaron and Dee were scheduled to fly home to Canada the next morning...
