In the East of Flores Island, East Nusa Tenggara -NTT, there is a fisherman hamlet which is majority Bajo tribe coming from South Sulawesi. The hamlet is called ‘Wuring’ which is located in the suburbs of Maumere, precisely at Wolomarang, West Alok district. Wuring hamlet is the one whose most of its residents’ houses are built on the sea. Thus when visiting the hamlet, you will see very beautiful ocean view. Many fisherman hamlets are found in Indonesia, but the difference between Wuring hamlet and other fisherman hamlets is coastal area which is used as residence of the local people and its sea water is also quite clear. In 1992, when earthquake and tsunami hit Flores, the hamlet was destroyed, and swept by tsunami which killed many people. After the disaster, there were some people who moved to other locations, but most of them chose to stay and built again their home. Wuring villager is known to be very friendly. They will greet with their smile when meet visitors who enter their territory. If you want to visit the hamlet, it is not quite difficult because the land line is easy to be passed. From Maumere, you must pass Trans Flores heading to the West. After passing 1 kilometer from the city, you have to turn right and you will arrive at Wuring hamlet.
