Not much to report here from our little island off Flores; this may be the laziest week I’ve ever spent. Except for our excursion to see the dragons on Rinca Island we just hung around the island. A little swimming, some snorkeling, a couple walks around the island, lots of reading, great meals … that’s all.
One item worth noting was how great the food was here. On a little island with literally nothing besides our lodge, we had every meal for a week in the same restaurant and we never got tired of it. They had a huge menu and – this is what was so remarkable, with typically no more than 10 or 12 people for a meal – never ran out of anything. I don’t know how they could do it, but the food ranged from really good to really, really good. I wonder, though, if they have any tomatoes left; Mark and I both had fresh tomato salads every day with lunch. YUM!
