So, U reckon it&#39;s pretty safe to go. <br /><br />I have been looking into the news &amp; have not seen any other coverage except for the day it happened &amp; it seems that the coast is clear hehe.<br /><br />I am suppose to be staying at Quest Hotel Bali. Do U have any recommendation of guides with good rates? By the way, are U able to advise how much I should budget for food &amp; expenses per day?Engnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-4346452509593727364.post-34627404368169055502011-10-24T21:57:11.157+08:002011-10-24T21:57:11.157+08:00There was one aftershock about 4 hours after the i...There was one aftershock about 4 hours after the initial quake but it was only a 4.8 or something. I think it&#39;s as safe in Bali now as it will ever be. It was the biggest quake in 36 years I believe so I think the chances of it happening again are slim. That said, it is in the ring of fire so you never know but I&#39;m sure you&#39;ll be fine.
