|Maurole as we arrived. Last years umbrellas on the ground. All happy.|
We have seen and experienced a lot here…nice all nice. Man washing their horses on the beach in the evening. The evening fires like big bonfires. Kids playing ball with “the boys” and tired kids sleeping on cool graves it was hot HOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTT HHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOTTTTTTTT.We had dinners at restaurants which turned out to be private homes with a simple menu and they had a menu Nasi Goreng their national dish of fried rice. Had new neighbor a man on his boat that was just centimeters bigger than his body who come to Maurole for 3 weeks from their village far far away to fish. This man fished cooked slept and did all he had to to survive on his little boat. Robert wanted to give him frozen chicken for dinner one night. I stopped him thinking he did not eat it frozen chicken - wish I had not! I went on a photo trip to the village and played with kids who screamed to have their photo taken and delighted when I showed them their images. Than there was this graceful old lady. She was shy and agreed to have a photo taken when she saw the image she cried…my feeling were she cried for what she become from what she remembered herself to be…at the end we both cried. Life….simply perfect...and so fragile
Here we also went on the trip to Kelimutu Lakes.
