      ... The number of male and female structures match the number of clans in the village. Beno is the largest traditional village we visited and has 9 clans. As we sat on the base of a male structure, Alfons described how they built it. First a hole is dug out and animals are sacrificed inside. A dog, pig, and chicken are all placed into the hole alive as offerings to the ancestors and then a totem pole with nice carvings is placed in the hole, suffocating the animals. On ...

      ... Gusti's school, home, and/or go for lunch for some local food. We both felt quite bad for Gusti. He was so apologetic and up until this moment, he was smiling all the time. His demeanour changed a bit and he was visibly upset our plans had to change. We really didn't know what was going on since all of the people in the van and Gusti weren't speaking english. As it turned out, we made it to a mechanic shop outside of Ruteng. They dropped ...

      The gloss of finding paradise lost is starting to lose it's lustre due to the headache of travelling from place to place. The morning started off ok. We hired a motorbike and went for a drive to a traditional local village which was highlighted as a must see in the area. Nestled in a clearing in the jungle underneath the shadow of a volcano was the small village of Bena. Home to nine clans where two lines of thatched roof huts surround a central burial ...

      Had to wait until 1pm for the public bus to Riung, location of the 17 Islands Marine Park, and then it spent half an hour driving round town picking up more people (once again i was the only tourist on board), but at least it only cost 35,000IDR. The journey was on a single track road over the 'mountains' of central Flores and was beautiful and scenic all the way. Although only 65 kilometres it took 4hrs 15mins because we went at about ...
