Scene at Ajora Falls

A short drive from Durame, and an even shorter hike from the car is “Ajora Falls”, twin waterfalls that come out of the flat farmlands over a sheer cliff for a drop of a couple hundred meters.

We had a few locals following us, but the guards have trained them not to be pesky to foreigners to help this small tourist site. We saw a few of them scampering to stay out of the reach of the guards switch. IMG_5854  IMG_5858

Our small picnic lunch was in this traditional style house. You can see the inside of the roof construction and supports at the right.

Amazingly, this gorge and the waterfalls were completely undetectable until we were right upon it. Because they do a small bit of irrigation here, this area has a lot of papaya and mango trees flourishing from the water.

Our friend Esther (bottom right) came with us; she also served as a guide since she knows the local language. Her husband Pastor Malota is the Academic Dean at our mission school.
