Where I stayed
A guest house...

Flag of Indonesia  , East Nusa Tenggara,
Sunday, January 10, 2010

Landed in Lubuan Bajo in the afternoon with one thing on our minds - shower! The town seems to be far more expensive than a run down Indonesian town should be, but we eventually found a guest house with a decent room and fresh water shower. Wow that shower felt good...

With no luck on finding a place with electricity to use the internet we headed for The Corner restaurant/bar to spend the rest of the night. It was quite a luxury to be eating something other than rice/noodles after our meals on the boat - and of course the Bintang flowed once more. So much so that Filco (sp!?) managed to completely misjudge his step when we headed back to say bye to the people on the boat and ended up falling right down into the habour water. Pretty lucky to be uninjured really...

Caitlin and I somehow ended up playing a few games of Dominos with a some older Indonesian guys playing by the harbour! They seemed to be having a great time laughing at us... The night ended in a long hunt for water - more difficult than it should have been as the whole town seems to go to sleep from about 9pm...

Up early the next day to fly all the way back from where we'd started our boat trip! The airport was brilliant - just a single strip of concrete with little or no security. At least they didn't seem to be bothered about the school kids taking a shortcut over the runway that morning!
