We loved Moni, and after 3 days of morning bus journeys, thoroughly enjoyed stopping still for a few days! Moni is a beautiful village, surrounded by rice paddies and Kelimutu volcano, with hot springs and a beautiful waterfall - perfect! We spent lots of our time here at the waterfall, and Tara made some young local friends swimming under (and through!) it.
We also took motorbikes up to see the multicoloured lakes at the top of Kelimutu: there are 3 of them, one turquoise, one black, and one brown.
The 3 hour walk back down was tiring and very hot (we'd timed it perfectly so that we could be walking at midday!), especially as our short cut turned out to be a bit longer than expected(!), but the views were incredible, and we got to walk through some fascinating traditional villages.
We also spent a fair amount of time here eating banana porridge with John (who cycled here from England!!) :).
