BUS to BUKAPITING wed04082011

awoke to sounds of mosques-with sunriseover still water and about20 yachtsbetween haven and harbour.
my 1995 Lonly Planet describes Alor archipelago as asmall chain of islands,volcanic mountainous specks separated byswift deep straits.
topped up fuel tanks,put up sunshades,dinghied to shore,wentwalking(jalan jalan)-busy main streets,quite back streets with chideren.
saw an ancient bus-going to bukapiting.it then overfilled at market and off we went along the coast,then the hills 33km &.an hour later wewere there-small neat village.we hired ojek riders to take us to see the hotsprings.when we got back it gradually became clearer as it got darker that there was no return bus today,.luckily Lhyfing,a uni student found us and invited us to stay in her house.itwasa priviledge to meet her papa and mama and brother,and share dinner,and conversation.we then slept very well
