We all saw a dance this morning and enjoyed it very much. So different from South Sea stuff.Gangs and drums make unmusical music and dancers warm up like jitterbugs. Got a piece of cloth woven finely in nice patterns, for four pounds.

Low and I got bikes and cycled all over town. Everything so interesting and clean. Water viaducts on hills very nice. Saw natives dancing at some sort of celebration at a private native hut. Low and I were invited in and saw two dances, then had to scram for nasi-goring – six of us with chow and drinks 6 pound.

Left Kupang at two. Bligh came here 153 years ago after his 3600 mile jaunt in the open boat.
