Goodbye, HARRIS Hotel!

On our last night in Bali, we were going to 'go Greek' and dine at the seriously apostrophe-challenged Mykonos Greek Taverna in Seminyak. After an hour of being stuck in Kuta's traffic jam - it's Eid al-Fitr, the end of Ramadan, and everyone is on holidays -, we told the driver to turn back to HARRIS where we said "Καλὴ ὄρεξη!" to some beer and chips!

Next day, not wanting to get stuck in another traffic jam on our last day before the late-night flight back to Australia, we made use of HARRIS's 2 o'clock late check-out after which we hung about the pool, at HARRIS and the adjoining Bali Prani Hotel which is under the same management. The Prani is actually a much nicer hotel - at about half the HARRIS-rate! - and it seems such a pity that it will be pulled down in a few months' time to make room for a much bigger HARRIS hotel.
