Re: Actually, it was Flores
Nice one : ). Every now and again we would get out of the vehicle, on our way somewhere and the small stones start jumping up and down on the asphalt. You could feel the earth shaking. The locals didn't even notice ...
We visited some fisherfolk, just outside Maumere, living in houses on stilts, on the sea. Few months later, we heard, they all got wiped out by a tsunami. It was so terribly sad, remembering their happy faces, knowing that most of them were gone. 1991
