Our first accomodation fell through and we ended up driving around and found this beautiful little hotel right on the lake in Flores. Clean, pretty with a stunning view - what else could you want? It was under $50 Aus per night and the staff were lovely and very helpful.

... are several pools of water fed from the mountains. We first went up a steep, slippery path up one side of the gorge to a lookout where we had great views of the site. Then we descended on another steep, slippery path and onto the limestone bridge. We could see where the river goes under and the pools were a lovely turquoise colour due to minerals in the rock and were great to swim in. Our guide took us under one of ...
... a thing. We then came to a sign pointing to the grand plaza about 25 minutes away. It was then that I realized, this huge city was enormous and shrowded by the jungle. Every temple and building was a 20 minute hike through the jungle. The greand plaza was just that. Grand beyond explanation. Photos I will later include will try to show the amazing construction abilities of this culture that did not have the benefits of our modern tools. We ...
... modo a tornare nella piazza principale, con i suoi due templi e l’acropoli: lo spettacolo è decisamente diverso da qualche ora prima, perchè i turisti sono finalmente arrivati e hanno invaso i templi e i siti principali. La pace e l’atmosfera senza tempo se ne sono andati con il loro arrivo: il sito archeologico è ancora impressionante, ma ci verrebbe quasi da dire a tutta questa gente che si sono persi il meglio. Meglio per noi; come sempre, chi dorme ...
