Two days of traveling from Africa to Jakarta, tree continental flights, a massive car drive which finally brought us to Werur Village - West Papua. The village where our local contact is based and who was willing to help us to get to Amsterdam Island.
Once we arrived in Sorong two persons where waiting for us. Mr. Bass; our producer/translator from Bali and Mr. Edy; a stranger from West Papua. Edy arranged an impressive 4 x 4 pickup which set tone for our journey! From the moment we started driving we lost any form of connection to the civilised world and had to hope our plan would work out... Our camera batteries where fully charged so the mission was getting asap to the island, shoot the must haves and the rest is extra!
After a full day of driving we had a warm welcome at the Werur village and were invited to sleep in the house of Edy's family, in one family sleeping room, together with the whole family! Haha, absolutely back to basic. There was no form of tourism, signal or electricity.
Back to the mission: Amsterdam island.
