We departed from Surabaya on 08.05am to Sumba Island, NTT and arrived at Sumba Island on 01.30pm.  From Tambolaka Airport we take another trip with a car about 2 hours driving.  The resort we stayed in is about 500m2 above seal level and it quite far to the beach and we spend the nice evening at the resort and off to bed earlier as the big day starts on 3am.

But as my thought we all never really can get up on 3am.  So we missed to see the Sumba people try to find the "Nyale".  Before Pasola begins they have to find Nyale worms at the beach.  And I heard from people they find skinny Nyale which means the farming season this year is not so good and people will starving.

Pasola warriors started the warming up from 07am to 09am at the beach.  They had a break one hour before get into the real battle on 10.30am.

We headed back to hotel on 12pm as the sun burned our skins.
