The Beautiful Koka Beach at Flores Island

Trip around the island of Flores is guaranteed not to be tedious because we will be able to see the beauty of the various corners.
At the end of October 2015, I was with a friend start a trip around the island of Flores. Our trip started early by plane from Kupang to Maumere. Arriving in Maumere we continue the journey to the village of Moni which is located 13 km from the starting point of the ascent of Mount Kelimutu.

The trip to the village of Moni from Maumere very exciting because the roads are impassable in the form of winding - winding that seemed endless.
When entering the territory of Paga, or about 42 km from the town of Maumere here we find a signpost pointing towards the beach Koka a distance of 2.5 Km from the highway. Out of curiosity, we asked the driver to stop first at the beach.
We entered the road that turned out not too good condition even rocky, on the right side of the road is thriving cocoa trees.

After passing through the semi off road we finally arrived at the beach Koka. Curiosity paid off when he saw the beautiful coast of the South Island of Flores. Koka beaches have clean white sand and lined by cliffs - cliffs that look dazzling on the other hand looks like this beach has two small bays are limited both by a large rock in the middle.

Beaches on the right appear fierce because decorated with rows of coral and rock fraudulent constantly hit by waves continuously while the left side seems more gentle because of the panorama form hill and fine, white sand.

Due to our arrival here during weekdays so no one else who visit our besides making beach Koka ours seemed personal, we were free to take the object - which is good without any interruption.

Actually we are still reluctant to move from this beach, but our journey is still far away so we had to leave this beautiful beach. We arrived back to the highway which was not far from the entry point we have crossed the line of Maumere and we go in the district of Ende.

It has been almost even 10 years. Mother and father had never visited us. Somehow, their passports are not so-so. The strongest reason I believe ... because Germany was far away, a long journey requires energy and a long time.

The desire to submit to the agency or take care of himself, has never been taken. Money sent ..... "When your parents come?" My husband, either for the umpteenth time, asked. "He said if already harvested beans ..." I Imitate the same answer from them.

We also uproariously. Laugh sadness and waiting because my parents did not arrive. There still time? My belief, true mother said that Germany will be very fierce in a very Javanese father. Culture here is different ... especially the weather. Very cold. Father can go to the toilet a hundred times a day. AC

Eve on the plane can make a direct father of flu. The father is already accustomed to tropical weather with winds only. Wind natural, not artificial. Mr can be shocked by the disposition of local people are certainly different from the Javanese .Ah, yes already. So when I was going home, there is still a desire to invite the parents, especially the mother to the streets. "Mom, nyang Publications, yuk ..." Want me repeat my nostalgia, her husband and children to it while still living in Indonesia. The time, wanted to be with the mother.

Yes ..the same picnic mother to the tourist attractions are cheap, fun but beautiful. "Unwilling, adoh ..." She shook her head. Just imagine Jepara already far. Moreover, the island of Karimun. "Put on the plane, Bu ... mung 200 ewuan." Since opening Susi Air flight schedule to the island of Karimun in a particular day, there can not only be reached by boat, but also the aircraft. Faster and the price is not so expensive. "Wedi I ..." makes me sad shake of her mother. I understand the fear. In addition to age, the mother does seem afraid of heights .... Mom will love traveling hours by bus transportation. No air conditioning though. For the plane?

Mother will think a thousand times .And behold, thump the sky is so blue, the water is so clear, so beautiful there natural assets that exist on this island can only be lifted and increasingly dazzle. Requirement local governments should not be alone, residents or people should also participate cancut taliwanda fought. Dispose of garbage do not arbitrarily do not damage the coral reefs for economic reasons create creative economy for local tourism.

Regional banks of Pedongkelan, West Jakarta to be damaged by the construction of the park former landfill near the park, trash that was in some complexes in collect together in the park so be damaged and smelled, if such who would want to visit and enjoy to the park.

One of the draw the attention of the garden Pedongkelan, have long been garden Pedongkelan built a lot of people are still not aware of the interest of the park and plants as living beings, which would provide coolness for the community itself, and jg do not care for cleanliness and order in the park Pedongkelan.

Example still a lot of rubbish small scattered in several areas of the park, like in the gutter, seat and located in the middle of the grass, of course, most of the people are concerned with the beauty of the park  and expect the government to be held janitors , as well as a warning to the indiscriminate dumping of garbage and also give witness to the offender.

March 2015, the government finally intervened by deploying janitors park. and the government also announce to the chairman Rt locals for three months in order to give the program (let's keep our park) to the community by to join his participation several communities in carrying out voluntary work every day of the week to come help clean the park, because of course if we want a garden beautiful and cool we also have to maintain and preserve the park, because we only was as living things that can keep our own environments.

After three months with programs that provide government Taman Pedongkelan the former is parks slum, shunned people and often the landfill of some complex local, now turned into a beautiful garden, neat, clean and resented by many people.

Many are also various facilities such as CCTV or sports equipment are made of materials throughout the mainly pipe scrap metal are interconnected and made to resemble fitness equipment and then repainted so it looks good and worthy for the visitors, there are also many places to play children for example slides, swings and much more, every morning the villagers around so many have often come to the park just to relax breathe fresh air, and just accompany their children to play, as together we know the park has several functions one of which , the park also serves as a place of recreation contains educative.

With the park around the neighborhood add attractions nuanced simple but can build high socialization gathering place for the community, the park also has a health function, a garden full of trees into ecological tourism that makes the air to be clean and makes our lungs become cleaner. We must realize that the importance of the park is not just a place for recreation but as a park absorbent pollution ​​air polluted by various air pollution. All and thank you from me
