Magical moments

This is real, though it looks fake

Had a lovely tour on the south-west part of Flores last night. One of those magical nights when the sea is almost still, no wind, nice temperature and well, the setting – nothing more to ask of that.

This is one of many great views of the island

How the Atlantic looked like a polished dance floor with the sun shining among the clouds is a sight I’ll remember for ever. It was all so beautiful it’s impossible to take pictures that actually give a hint of the real thing. And yet everything on the pictures look so perfect I had to put a person in some of them to make it a bit more real…

See?!

See?!

It’s still rather calm and quiet here on the island, though the tourist season begun a few weeks ago – we’ve seen more and more rental cars and typical tourists (they’re easy to spot among the locals…).

We’ve been lucky to be here so early in the year, with quite warm and good weather (it’s gotten so much better in the past weeks) and almost everyplace we’ve gone for hiking and sightseeing we’ve been totally alone. That’s really something!

The views, the sea, the green green grass

Now this is what I call a good Friday night.
