Why not wake up at 5:50 on a Sunday morning on our time off from the IFP? With our research focused on IWANTs (Island-based Wildlife, Adventure, and Nature Tours) it seemed appropriate to spend our weekend off on an overland tour on Flores. Yesterday, we spent our day driving from Labuan Bajo to Cunca Rami, a massive waterfall approximately 2 hours from Labuan Bajo, and on to Dintor, ‘only’ 4 more hours humping and bumping across the small and winding roads of Flores. The long ride and our phones remind us how remote we are since there is no cellphone signal. So here we are, at 6 in the morning, being served banana pancakes by our kind host to provide us with enough energy to do what we actually came for: hike up the mountain to Wae Rebo.
