Lombok to Sape Bus Journey
Photo taken before leaving the busport in Mattaram, Lombok. We pulled out from the busport, around the corner, and stopped to pick up 3 chickens, 3 (open) cardboard crates of mealworms and what seemed like 5 cubic metres of cargo and about 20 people. The mealworms were relegated to the downstairs cargo hold, while the 3 chickens included a rooster that, thankfully, waited until 6.30am to start crowing.
Dinner in Sape, where we spent most of a day and a night after missing our connecting ferry to Flores. Jarkko, from Finland, was on the bus and is pictured centre. Nasi goreng cost us about $1.50 per person, including a can of coke each.
Sape Mosquito Farm… And it’s still more appealing than Bima.
