Arrived in Ende with the sunrise this morning. Was greeted by a smoking volcano and fishermen going about their business. When we dropped anchor, one of the fishing boats pulled up between Convivia and shore (very close) and dropped a pail full of cement (attached to a thin line) into the water (as their anchor). We watched as dozens upon dozens of locals swam and paddled out to the fishing boat to take the spoils back to market. We witnessed this lively scene as we chowed down on the hot apple crisp that Vick had put together on the way in.
All is well.
