“Visitors flocked to the Kintamani area of Bali yesterday after hearing reports that a unicorn had been sighted earlier in the day”

“We are told that the unicorn caused quite a stir. Babies screamed, and children ran crying into their mother’s arms. The normally unshakeable bullish women hawkers threw down their baskets of tacky, overpriced trinkets and souvenirs, and fled for the hills,” Ibu Wayan told reporters.

We have been told that for over an hour you could have heard a pin drop in the car park at Penelokan. Pak Made, of nearby Kedisan reports seeing the unicorn and his wife (described as a large, blonde bule) “playing around with a video camera”.

The last known sighting of the unicorn was at Pura Besakih though unfortunately we have no photographs to support this claim.

  1. Quite by accident, Pete and I have found the solution for getting rid of pesky hawkers and fellow tourists. Simply don a unicorn head and the whole place is yours for however long you wish to stay. You might be interested to learn (apart from rare unicorn sighting aside) that these wonderful masks can be purchased from a fabulous gift store in Joshua Tree CA 😀

    1. Yes, this was very funny. I think between myself and Irishman, we managed to clear the car park in about 30 seconds flat. It was so nice not to be hounded by the hawkers for once and to enjoy the place in peace 😀
