The island of Lombok “the righteous way”

I joined GAdventures for an 8 day exploration of the island of Lombok. Its very different from Bali. For one thing its Muslim but Bali is Hindu. That impacts the architecture and sleep! Every morning we have woken up to the 4:45 am call to prayer. There are often several mosques in one area and each one might have a different prayer time so it sometimes is ongoing.

We took a regular ferry to Lombok and by regular I mean the one the locals use. It was 4 1/2 hours of ricketiness and I think the life buoys have been there for a hundred years. Come to think of it I don’t remember lifeboats.

Then we hopped on our bus to Tetubatu our first island village.
