The new airport is in the middle of nowhere, with no public transport and no hotels. So we were looking at a breathtakingly expensive taxi until we met a local lady, Biata.
We shared a taxi with Biata to her home, met her family, she loaded the car with beers and dounuts and then she drove us to our hotel.
The next morning she met us at our hotel (delivering breakfast to us of course) and then drove us another hour, further North to the port of Bangsal, negotiated our boat to the island of Gili Meno before saying goodbye and wishing us well.
It was the kindest anybody has been to us on our trip so far and a great introduction to Lombok.
