I wanted to find the hot springs, but it was getting too late in the day. That was fine; it was too hot for hot springs!

Instead I stopped off at my third and final traditional Ngada village of the day: Gurusina.

The village was alive. The kids were back from school and were playing soccer. Dance music was blasting. The sun was low, giving nice light.

There were no tourists here. I think this is the least visited of all the Ngada villages near Bajawa.

I enjoyed my visit. The lady who spoke a little English said it’s possible to spend the night. Too bad I already paid for a room in Bajawa!
