In 1982 I worked as an English-talking tourist guide, however, during my leisure time, I learned the Italian language by my technique autodidact making use of English– Italian; Italian– English dictionary as well as grammar book. I invested about 2 hrs a day in learning it, sometime early in the morning, in the afternoon, and sometime late during the night. I succeeded to keep in my mind 2 words a day yet I found much difficulty in discovering the grammar since it is extremely different from my mommy’s language Balinese as well as Indonesian, yet I insisted to meet success. Every day, week by week and month by month, and also … ultimately I got it.
In October 1982 one of my friends who run a travel agent in Bali asked me to manage his customers, they were Italian and also speak a little English. That was my very first time practicing my Italian tongue. When I fulfilled them at the Bali International Airport terminal, the very first inquiry I have to answer was “where is the most effective area to dive”. With honesty actually, I didn’t recognize the response, however, I promised them, fortunately, the day after.
I visited my friend’s house and meet Bali Monyoh, a fisherman staying in Sanur the town on the southeast shore of Bali. I knew he was an excellent fisherman and very smart in shooting fish, diving with his very own skill utilizing very straightforward dive tools.
We discussed diving areas and also he told me that to find the most enjoyable dive, need to go to 2 o 3 different places of the fascinating undersea globe among the coral reefs. Mr. Bli Monyoh looked at his Balinese calendar to see a good day to visit the sea. My customers adored dive.
The first day he brought us to Semawang at Sanur by his outrigger sail watercraft. Found before Sanur Tourist Beach. Dives at a few meters depth were awarded by beautiful undersea scenic views, tables, and trophy-shaped coral reefs as well as sponges, and a thousand vibrant fishes swimming by in rainbow wealth. I am not a swimmer or a diver, I simply sit on the boat as well as prepared for the needs when they arise. Was a remarkable day.
On the 2nd day, Bali Monyoh brought his companion a wise diver named Agung Toya, together with them some gun (specifically an arrow) unwound by a solid rubber band made of the tire. Before living in Sanur, Bali Monyoh laid an offering and also scented scent before a holy place and prayed to God. Along the road concerning one as well as a half-hour drive, he stopped several times for hoping where there are holy places for God’s true blessing, safety as well as luck. Also before touching the water, he did so.
When we reached Bustan was a typical angling town, located in the area of Manggis Karangasem in eastern Bali near Candidasa, I was surprised by the elegance of the nature, an incredible view of the balconies ricefield, and rural ambiance as well as the Majestic Mount Agung at the far back, for Bali it is the area of the Supreme God “The Navel of the Globe”. The sea was spectacular, clear blue water, stayed untouched by modern influences, seducing everybody specifically beach as well as dive enthusiasts. Currently, Bustan boasts a high-end 5 stars hotel and also some small holiday accommodations in a Balinese design bungalow.
When we were preparing everything for the dive a friendly regional guy came close to us and provided his wooden boat made use of absolutely free in the hope of us catching a great deal of fish. We cruised at 09.00 a.m in the tranquil sea. Concerning 50 m from the coastline we got here on the coral reef where the wave breaks itself. Under great weather conditions, we might see a wonderful undersea world among the coral reefs.
My Italian customers brought their very own dive equipment because they were the holder of the PADI certificates. While the native scuba divers utilized their skills. Wow, wow, wow, what a wonderful day, we fished a whole lot (just selected fish), one point shocked me that Bali Monyoh got 4 king lobsters. At 11.00 a.m. we finished our experience, as well as the regional man, was waiting for us on the coastline ready with his woods fire, chili, onions, garlic, salt as well as coconut oil. We smoked our fish in unwind atmosphere on the coastline with the nice breeze of the sea and then enjoyed a scrumptious gala lunch in cowboy style. Wow, amazing, we celebrated and also delighted in a terrific day.
Now in Bali, there are some exciting as well as remarkable, world-distinguished dive sites: Nusa Dua, Sanur, Padang Bay, Gili Tapekong, Tulamben, Amed, Nusa Penida, and also Lembongan, and also Menjangan Island.
