Recovery Bali style

Whilst in Bali recently for my honeymoon, we took a tour of the local rubber, cocoa, coconut and other assorted crop plantations and had lunch on a hill overlooking the Indian ocean and the west coast of Bali.

All great stuff but when we went for a drive through the national park after lunch we got run off the road and the driver got the car stuck in a hole. He wouldn't listen to my directions or couldn't understand my english and ended up hard up against a tree with nowhere to move but straight forward and the ground was muddy so we was right royally stuck.

Luckily there was another tour group nearby with a couple of Landcruisers (I think) who came to the rescue. What happened then had to be seen to be believed. After much yelling and carrying on between them, in Balanese of course so it seemed like they were yelling at each other, they decided to pull it out using a straight tow strap. No one had heard of safety first it seems.

Needless to say, Vicky and I stepped waaaaayyyyy back out of the firing line of the strap and Yes, lucky for everyone, that is a sidchrome!
