In the last twenty-one years or so, Morro de São Paul (St. Paul's Hill) has gone from isolated, way-off-the-beaten-track third-world village to sun-and-beach international get-down party-hearty town. It is less of the kind of place to meet the locals and take in local culture than it is to soak in natural splendor and party all night long with people from all over the world.

 

These beach parties really heat up during the Brazilian summer (January until after Carnival) and happen every night. During the rest of the year they take place on Saturday nights, though not with the same intensity. Morro's drinks de rigueur are roskas, tropical fruits (your choice!) crushed in with sugar and vodka -- powerful and seditious.

 

The "main street" of the village is a sandy path lined on both sides with restaurants and bars, and the beaches are generally referred to with an un-Brazilian pragmatism as "first", "second", "third", or "fourth". The first beach (small) is lined with pousadas; the second beach (wide) is the party beach; the third beach (somewhat smaller again) is lined with more pousadas; and the fourth beach is extensive, beautiful, Caribbean-like tropical paradise.

Rafflesia in full bloom in the jungle on Tioman island. The Rafflesia on Tioman were unique because their vines were not underground, but grew up to the tree tops, with the tall trees of the jungle. This large bloom was hanging in mid air, eye level.

 

Thanks to Tan Lee Sah for lending me her Olympus DSLR to take this photo in RAW format. :-D

Something during the rainy season in Sumatra that is a rarity. This magnificent sunset I managed to capture with the Mavic Pro in portrait mode.

The rarist and biggest flowering plant in the wrold. The Raflessia Arnoldii is the rarist plant in the world.

Finally my trade in drone has arrived. Swapping the Phantom 4 for the Mavic Pro is going to mean I get to leave one big backpack at home and all my camera gear now fits into one bag. When you travel often and in an underdeveloped country and often in remote areas it means so much and the carry is now so much lighter. Quick test flight and test HDR in low light right above my house. Love the results for such a tiny thing.

I've been chasing waterfalls in remote villages around Central Bengkulu. It's fun getting out into the beautiful locations and experiencing the culture in the small villages. Then to discover the amazing waterfalls that dot the landscape. Wow an amazing place.

Bona with her new moma Sari. Not that she needs a new mum so much. A very independant 6 year old now.
