Shannon wonders if she'll ever get an explanation for Tamra's bad behavior, but is hopeful for a friendship with Heather.

Before I begin, I have to say one big "Yikes!" about my hair in Bali! The humidity did my hair no favors and I am so happy that you were all able to see it. LOL!!!

I never met up with Vicki and Tamra after our dinner in the prior episode, and stayed up talking with Lizzie and Danielle. As our group got together in the morning, there seemed to be a bit of a divide between us new gals and Vicki, Tamra, and Heather. I was still reeling from the information I was told the night before, but I have learned my lesson and had no intention of starting a conversation with Tamra when the whole group was in the van! 

We had a jam packed day visiting a temple and trying new and adventurous things. I have been quite vocal about my dislike of fish so I was proud of myself that I joined in the fish pedicure. I was also shocked that I allowed a monkey to climb up my body -- multiple times! I figured that if I traveled halfway across the world to come to Bali, I should absolutely participate in everything that I could. . .

. . .Except for the bike ride. On our last day, I was ready for a little pampering and relaxation at the spa. I couldn't take another car sick van ride! The hotel's spa was beautiful! When Vicki and I saw there was a crystal healing facial and massage we were all over it! We got a little silly in the pools and ice room and then had an amazing massage and facial!
