Traditional Villages

A travel blog entry by jasonandgaryn


... with baby chicks at two of the villages and a monkey, presumably a pet, at one of them. It was very tiny and so cute. Each village also had pet dogs. Beno has nine clans and 300 people in the village, the second village has four clans and 94 people, and the third has fewer clans than Beno, but larger families so it also has 300 people. Each clan has a chief, but there is also only one chief of each village. Throughout Bajawa there are 10 traditional villages and all ...

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 ...

Close encounter with a volcano

A travel blog entry by mickoobyrne


... its top and if there is smoke coming out even I can tell it is NOT dormant. Looking ahead I could see that the road just got closer and closer to it. Nothing for it but to keep going. Each time I rounded another bend I was sure there was more smoke than a minute or two before. Passed by OK and realised that I was the ONLY person giving it any attention at all. As it is Sunday I saw lots of families heading off to church as good Christians do but surprisingly there also seemed ...
