So we (Paige, Mai, and Mike) hired a driver to show us around the next town. But first to get a bottle of arak. (Palm/rice wine made in a toilet or something. Fucking strong. And gross.) No, not for us; for the driver and his friend. We saw these emerald spiderweb rice terraces that went on for miles and made cool designs in Cancar. We checked out a traditional Manggarai village. And in case you didn't know, kids in undeveloped countries love pens and paper and stuff. Aaand I got my backpack fixed for less than a dollar. And I got new flipflops. Third pair so far on this trip. WTF mate.
