Updating this from Larantuka on the tip of Flores, waiting for tomorrow's Ferry to Timor.
The roads have be fantastic and the driving joyful. We've been making good time.
We're getting further and further away from the normal tourist path. We know this because when a bus rolls by someone always hangs out the side, points, and shouts "Hey look, a white person!"
A few weeks ago I had to choose between hot water and internet at a hotel. Now neither is possible and I'm just happy when the water barrel for the scoop bucket shower doesn't have dead cockroaches in it.
