Visit Flores

Most Poeple only know Flores is a location in South America. I would like to tell about Amazing Flores in East Indonesia where most people didn’t know it before. Flores is small island (but in Europe can be a country) in East Nusa Tenggara, Indonesia. Portuguese named Flores because the island in the east looks like Flores (flower in England). West Flores look like a free and east Flores looks like flower because there are many capes in there.

How about Flores? Are there many best place to visit?

I would like to tell, Flores has thousand best places and tradition. One example can be explained to improve why Flores is special. Flores is consisted of Some districts and each districts is different by Language. So if I talk with my friend who came from my neighbor, We only use Indonesia Language. She/He doesn’t understand with my language and so do I. In East Flores is more unique. Any village has itself language and has many different in dialog and vocabulary. How we communicate each others? Indonesia National Language is the last resource of our verbal communication. We use local (regional) language to talk with each other. We call Bahasa Lamaholot. Bahasa Lamaholot is consisted of Local Language, Portuguese, Latin and Melayu. Bahasa Lamaholot is more popular and always used in daily activities except in formal education.

Flores also has unique way to know each others, to know his/her clan only with his/her name. For example, Friend says; Do you know Jacky? He also comes from Flores. No one knows the person and where he comes from. You must include his family name so We can explore and tell you the exactly where he comes. Let see deeper; My name is Jacky and my family name is Kerans. All people knows that I come from Flores, East Flores and then they will know my village.

We also have talent to locate where she/he village based on his/her face. West Flores People is mostly white although black skin has big portion, but we know them as West Flores Citizen.

There is our way to know each others.

Flores is Flower Island. You can see on Google Map. Each district has its own best place, panorama and sightseeing. West Flores Manggarai and Bajawa are wet land, so you can see paddy there, irigattion, coffee farming and many farming there. East Flores is extremmely Dry. No paddy there, only stones and stones there. West Flores is farmer and East Flores is fisher and hunter.
