We decided to make a dash for Flores on Jan 12 - the first unplanned stop on our trip.  After talking with other travelers and weighing the options, we determined that Flores and Komodo would be worth the effort. Everyone saw manta rays and we've always just missed them, so now's our chance!! 

The flights are less than reputable in Indonesia,  but it's really the only way to get to Flores especially this time of year.  Luckily, our flight was smooth (despite some hiccups at the airport), and we made it safely.

We met a fellow American at the airport planning to stay here 2-3 months to help his friend set up a dive shop.  Sounds good to me!!  The three of us shared a ride from the airport and our hotel is cute and functional.  They helped arrange scooter rides for us down to the town to try and book our next few nights hotel out on Kanawa Island. After several U-Turns and asking for directions, we finally found the little stand and got our reservations.  Hopefully, it'll be worth it!!!

The pizza in town at Made In Italy was better than expected - real brick oven pizza with fresh herbs and a spicy kick.  Yum!!!
