Letter from Sumba
I have the photos to prove it, though, and, as of late last week, I also have a story about it on the Winrock website: Letter from Sumba.
It's the first of several stories based on reporting from that trip, I hope. And it's gratifying because it translates the long flights and disorientation into words and photos.
It doesn't capture everything, of course: how muggy it was that day, how storm clouds rolled in but the rain held off, how the ocean looked on the night drive back to our hotel. But it chronicles some of it. Enough, I hope.
