    Route


    We cleared in Kupang/West Timor. Nothing really spectacular to see around there:


    Monkey Cave

    Yabes, our guide in Forest Reserve Camplong

    waterfall

    But the first encounter with Asian traffic is almost overwhelming.


    typical bemo(minibus)with driver assistant

    sometimes quite deafening



    The next island we're visiting is Lomblen. Anchored in Lebolebo Bay you only have to get up early morning to have the most stunning views.


    Outrigger fishing boat

    The evenig has nice views too




    Morning Impressions #1



    In reality even more beautiful




    Fisherman setting mast and sails



    ...and sails away



    Locals bathing in the evening

    Morning Impressions #2



    A few hours walk from our anchorage in Hading Bay/NE-Flores we found a little village which seemed to be untouched from any modern influence. Unfortunately the inhabitants were hiding from us.


    Just like we found it


    The locals passing by at our anchorage were still using traditional canoes. But they had something modern: Dynamite!. The day we left they detonated some not 40m away from Freedom Fargo.


    Dynamite fishing seems to be a little bit dangerous

    Canoe/detail



    Only 30 miles further west, in Maumere, we we're back to civilisation.


    Morning Impressions #3, this time in Maumere

    Boy with his canoe going out fishing



    From here we go up to the mountains to visit the crater of Kelimutu(1600m) and the villages ofWolonjita and Nggela both famous for their traditional Ikhat Weavings


    Waiting for the sunrise at Kelimutu



    Preperation for dying

    A peace of this size is a two month work
