I finally have a moment to talk about my favorite moment/ memory of my Bali vacation: our evening of dinner and mutual sharing of talent between us and the Villa Bodhi staff.
From the very beginning of our Bali adventure, I would say that we were all so grateful to the villa staff for their attentiveness and caring of our every need... so much so that within a couple of days of this extreme pampering, Iris suggested that we host a dinner for the staff on our 2nd to the last day.
Unfortunately for the staff, they still had to cook and prepare for our fellowship, but, I know they did it happily as they do all the time. Well, we did help plan the menu- Wayan's greatest hits for the week- and we hoped that they would include some of theirs. I found myself grinning from ear to ear as I witnessed the staff meeting to discuss how to set up the dining area to best accomodate all of us to provide us all with the most pleasant experience possible.
For our part, we decided that we would share some leis, dance and sing. Sandy spent the day stringing together a Plumeria (picked by the staff) lei for each Villa Bodhi staff member and I spent the afternoon practicing on my guitar.
At dinner time, Theresa gave a heartfelt and teary speech that conveyed beautifully our gratitude and feelings of aloha that we had come to feel for everyone on a very short amount of time.
After dinner was the best part. Below are Sandy and Theresa dancing to the flirtatious Papa Lahi Lahi while accompanied my yours truly. Early Sandy danced to Waikiki.
