This evening at eight we settled in one of the ballrooms of the Hotel Jen. All the short speeches and welcomes were in English which made a lovely change from the long winded ones we endured in Indonesia. The dancing was very similar with ladies coming on with gift boxes and the men with sarongs.

The evening was well attended, many of the forty two registered yacht crews were present. Behind us food was laid out in soups, salads, sweets and two lines of hot dishes (noodles, rice, meats, vegetables), something for everyone.

We couldn’t get over the chandeliers, well, it has been such a long time since we have seen any.
