Epic fail!! Thanks Cathay Pacific! They canceled the last flight out of Bali to Hong Kong screwing over 450 people, distributing them to three different crappy airport hotels. I knew if I waited until the next day as they were demanding, I would never get out of there. I went full commando, figured out a flight plan and waited until I got the ticketing agent to put me on a red-eye to Melbourne back to LAX. It took 10 hours longer but I made it home.
It's hard to believe that in a couple of hours, I am going to be leaving this wonderful paradise and leaving for home. In about 36 hours, I will be trading in my swimsuit for my business suit. This has been an amazing adventure that I have learned a lot from and I come home a changed person. Good bye Southeast Asia!
I went to visit Ketut Liyer. Because if his fame, he has people taking numbers to get a reading. He charges about $25 per reading. He has business cards made. "Medicine man/healing + meditation/ palm reading/ Balinese astrology/ painter + wood carver/ home stay.". He asked me where I was from. I said USA like Elizabeth Gilbert. He smiled big with his 2-toothed grin and said, "Elizabeth, she's my friend." He was wearing a Los Angeles shirt and I told him I came from near Los Angeles. Blank.
He said, "I say the future. If good, I say good. If bad, I say. If you don't like, just say, not my cup of tea."
"You are very, very pretty. You will live to 100 and you will be pretty until you die, sorry don't be mad at me. My English is very bad."
"You are best at your job. You are impatient. You have authority over people, people come to you and listen."
"Don't worry about your future. You will be very rich and successful in what you do."
"You make right decision. You lips sweet like sugar."
(Some very personal stuff ...)
Ended with, "see you later alligator."
Thanks to Elizabeth Gilbert and Julia Roberts, I estimate he's making $200k per year.
