We saw some big old stone structures where people would sacrifice animals in old ruins.

We were passing through Ende and saw all of our driver's family having a graduation party. So we drank some arak and hung out for a bit. It was pretty funny. We saw people scrapping a big wreck about 100m from the shore. It was like a buncha ants with blowtorches taking apart a giant dead grasshopper. There were a bunch of people sorting millions of rocks on the beach by hue and size to sell. Crazy.

Then we went to some hot springs and waterfalls. The villagers were having a cooking class for the younger girls, and they made us stay and taste all of their foods they made with local crops. They don't even have fucking ovens, and they made some bomb brownies with cassava. Cray.

We saw sunrise over a volcano with three different colored crater lakes (light turquoise, dark greenish-blue, and dark brown). We came back to town and shopped at the outdoor market.

We also stopped by the beach to eat and swim a little.
