It wasn't until after I cleared security at the airport on February 18th that I realized my flight was the following night. I gave myself a good swift kick in the behind for writing the departure date down wrong in my notebook, and then caught a taxi back to Ronta Bungalows in Kuta to find my crew and have a well-deserved beer (and laugh).
As it turned out, in the meantime, Laura and Jessica had booked the same flight to Singapore as I would be on the next evening. We ate and amused ourselves until we'd all leave Bali. Linus was heading back to Komodo for a second attempt to see the dragons in their natural habitat.
I said goodbye to Linus for the 4th and final time, as did the girls, and we shared a taxi to the airport. We wandered a bit, drank some coffee, and boarded our 10:15pm flight to Singapore.
