After a long drive across the island (and it was the short way across, but driving in Indonesia is so attrociously slow), and sleeping close to our departure point, we got up bright and early (actually it wasn't bright at all yet) at 03:00 and took our tour car towards Kelimutu National Park. We drove almost all the way to the top and only hiked a mere 20mn at most.
Watching sunrise there was not better than Haelakala in Maui, but it was still very very nice. One interesting thing is that the 3 lakes routinely change color depending on the volcanic activity and what ends up in the water.
After this nice excursion, we got back to our lodge for breakfast, packed and went on the road to visit some villages and markets:
One of the villages:
We got a visit in one of the traditional houses in exchange for a tip :)
I caught a little chick for Jennifer :)
and I found another little chick that needed to be picked up :)
rich people had different houses
And then more driving to back to Maumere...
busses are full
We got to a restaurant by the beach for lunch:
taking the pig to the market
And we finally arrived to our lodge by the beach to rest and go to bed very early for a 02:00 waking up the next morning:
somehow another little chick ran into my hand :)
