Selamat Datang

We followed the native boat into the dock.  They built this dock just for us, it moved a lot but there were always many helping hands to get us ashore.

We always feel very special when the town prepares a special welcome for us.Description: C:\Users\Cheryl\Desktop\IMG_0016.JPG

We were officially welcomed to Kalahabi, Alor Island, first by the dignitaries and young people, then dancing.

After the official business was over we explored the town with Shelia and Stuart.  We met some interesting people along the way!  Stuart bought a phone for Shelia for $16.00, phones are something the Indonesian people can afford.
