I expected a long day homecoming. After traveling for a month in Singapore, Malaysia, Sumatra, Java, Bali, Lombok and the Gili Islands, the fateful day of planes arrived, you wait and forget the addiction of tobacco for a long time.
I chose well when staying at Jimbaram, far from the frantic Kuta and near the airport.
I had breakfast and took a bluebird taxi that left me at the airport for less than 40,000 rupees.
I arrived in time to make my last purchases. I just had to reserve the 150,000 rupees to pay the fees for international departures and spend the last 200,000 rupees that I had left.
Unfortunately and as always, duty free prices are marked in dollars and are much higher than the reality of the country. At that time you remember the man who sold bracelets and necklaces through the streets of Sumatra, the shops of clothes and souvenirs in Ubud or the kids who sell coconut necklaces for the Gili Islands.
Reluctantly I finished my rupees and I placed the change in a solidarity urn for the victims of the Merapi volcano.
At singapore airport six hours of waiting for me to resume my destiny to Barcelona. Fortunately I was in one of the best airports in the world and one never gets tired of seeing shops, smoking in the multiple smoking rooms, watching free internet on computers posted in several areas and even saw a whole movie in a cinema adapted in the same terminal. Even in terminal 1 there is a heated pool and there are also showers that can be used for $ 14.
When I left the movie I was alarmed to see that the flight had been delayed three hours. We were told that for reasons of delay of the arrival flight we would leave at 2:45 in the morning and they gave us a limit of $ 20 to spend in the restaurants of the airport. As a good traveler, instead of complaining like most passengers, I did not miss the occasion and I dodged a good Thai dish between film and film, taking a look at twitter at free internet stalls and visiting stores, playing with the new ones Play games, the latest mobile models, visiting bookstores or playing with the new macs. You don't get tired at the Singapore airport!
