Flores: The Kids of Rinca

Besides the spectacular landscape, Flores is also the land of some of the nicest people in Indonesia. My friend jokingly said that Flores is the land of the 'high fives', which to some extent I find that this were true, most of the people (especially kids) will raise their hand and try to give you a high five! During our island hopping trip we made a stop at Kampung Rinca, it is a small settlement located on Rinca Island. When we arrive on the settlement, we were greeted by a bunch of local kids. Some philanthropist established a school on this island - "Taman Bacaan Pelangi", where local children learn to read and study some elementary school lessons, it is also run by locals. We brought some books to add to their collection, you should bring some too when you visit the Island. The warm greetings given by the kids and the people of this island made a visit to Rinca an unforgettable experience.
