Today we are leaving Kupang to travel in Indonesia before returning home to the UK on Decemeber 12th.
It is with mixed feelings we leave - so sad to say farewell to some great people, relieved to get away from the heat and noise, satisfied (even smug) about what we have achieved , amazed at what people can and will achieve when given the opportunities, intrigued by the resourcefullness of people when there are no 'health and safety regs' to inhibit enterprise.
We will miss the smiles and endless greetings of 'Hello Mister', the friendly interchanges (assumed) , being stroked by strangers who just want to feel the skin,
Any way a few photos gives a better impression than my ramblings. Just a small selction form my collection of 265,765.
This is the last blog from Kupang as we are off on our travels tomorrow - first stop National Park in Kalimantan (Borneo) to see the wildlife in the rainforest , involves a boat trip up river to a reserve in teh national park where we will stay in a lodge (???) - the highlight for me will be to see the Orang Utans
