Bondalem

Having caught bemos and various other transport from Pemuteran through the larger cities to get here, I enjoyed the peacefulness in this village.

What I liked about this place was that whoever was having dinner there ate together with Tilli, the owner. I met Sandy Robson who is sea kayaking around the world. Read about her journey here.

Hired a scooter. Before long I was tooting, overtaking and revving along with the locals. Note i am wearing a helmet and closed shoes – very unusual in these parts.

I visited Sembrian village in the hills behind Bondalem, a weaving and natural dye place, and Air Sanir.
