Once we got off the main highway (which was already pretty rough) the road deteriorated immediately. The asphalt was long gone , just the rounded river rocks used as the base was left. Ever driven over a rocky riverbed? I just did for four hours.
The good news was that I got a really good look at village life in rural Flores...life is hard but nature's abundance was overwhelming: macadamia and clove trees everywhere, bananas, cacao, papaya. And as it was a Sunday we passed hundreds of people in their Sabbath Day best heading to church. The majority of people on Flores are Catholic!
