I developed a sudden urge to ask for a chicken dish, after realizing that the rooster cries had nothing to do with the time of the day. Staying in the northern part of the Jimbaran Beach area, I had to realize a few things:
- It is 3 a.m. and roosters seem to be everywhere, judging by the depth of reverberating and seemingly echoing sound of roosters penetrating from distant depths of urban Denpasar, as well as from my own courtyard. Or is it in my bedroom?
- Roosters don’t shout out when the sun goes up. Or at any specific time of day. They just cry out all night. Attentively I followed their song from 2:30 to 6 a.m.. Yes, this means I pretty much didn’t sleep all night. And I was already wearing earplugs.
I shall enquire in the morning where that rooster resides, whether they see a connection between maniac rooster and lack of guests, and whether I can have it for dinner, just for the sake of a good nights sleep.
