on our way to the island of bali we ran out of diesel and we had to make an emergency stop in the port of kupang to refill. the wind was seriously lacking and the cyclone season upon us; we could not risk drifting out in the ocean waiting for some wind so we stopped in this industrial port full of fishermen to get our diesel. we anchored outside of a mosque at the time of prayer, took the jerry cans in the dinghy, met some nice people that spoke english and got money and the diesel. shortly after we left timor and continued our way towards bali.
