A little about the island I will be going to work and live.

Flores is about 360 km end to end, and 14,300km2. The island is volcanic, and shaped by mountainous valleys and ridges separating communities into distinct ethnic groups. It has approximately 1.5 million residents, with 6 separately identifiable languages being spoken across the island.The island inhabitants are predominantly Catholic, however Ende, one of the main towns, is half Catholic and half Muslim.

Ende is the capital city of Flores. It is located on the South Coast. It has good transport links both by sea and air. It is hemmed in by black sand beaches and has a backdrop of mountains.

These are a few facts, but soon I will be able to tell how things are from my own eyes!
