Labuan Bajo on the island of Flores is not an interesting town. It’s very small, mostly made from corrugated metal and open sewers, and has no sights. People come here for the islands; there’s a small airfield.

It’s so small that our little turboprop touched down, did a U-turn on the runway, went all the way back to the other end, and parked in front of the little building there, all alone on a field smaller than the typical supermarket parking lot. Tomorrow I’ll take a boat out to the islands too; I’ll be back on the net on Wednesday.
