SUMBA: OUR HIGHLIGHTS AND GRATITUDE

Our visit to Sumba Island had a great impact on our lives. Even though Sumba Island’s scenery left us speechless, we were stunned to see how the locals lived. When we visited the traditional Sumbanese Village, the poor living conditions they were experiencing brought tears to our eyes.
These villagers have the warmest hearts. They are all incredibly friendly and wonderful. They even extended an invitation for us to visit their homes so we could view how the bamboo houses are set up and what were inside. The bamboo floors of the hut are where the residents sleep without pillows or mattresses. Their kitchen lacked ventilation and was located in the center of the house. Being invited in was such an honor and privilege, and the whole thing left us feeling quite humble.
