I am staying with a very lovely family just outside of Maumere, being hosted by Ivon, who is the sister of a guy called Willy, who I met while riding the Gibb River Road in Australia. I got here around 1pm and spent much of the afternoon on the front porch writing down thoughts, reading my kindle and observing the general happenings of the tiny village I was in. Ivon has five children, four of whom were at home. Her husband France arrived in the evening. They are a close family and I enjoyed watching the boys play fight and cuddle on the living room floor. It is very nice to be among normal home life.
