Indonesia - Sumba - Kelala to Tarimbang - April 2010
Waingapu to Kelala 650 000 rupiah
This was a long drive.
As the crow flies, the distance isn’t too far but the roads in Sumba are different. The drive from Kelala to Waingapu went via the south and east coast which is relatively flat. It lasted 2 ½ hours.

There was a lot of rain which isn’t much fun in steep and windy roads which are deeply potholed.
