1. I tamed wild traffic every day.
In Bali, you either get on that scooter and snake your way through traffic, or you end up struggling to walk in a pile of snakes alongside traffic.
2. I learned how to fight with a monkey.
I found out that I should never, EVER bring fruit into any proximity of the Sacred Monkey Forest in Ubud. Silly me didn’t realize I was standing at the entrance and things got really ugly when a fuzzy beast tried to rip the banana from my hand. I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but after 30 seconds of slapping each other, he won.
