Photographer's Note

Two Ambonese girls, Emelda and Liza having fun in the warm tropical waters at Pantai Natsepa (Natsepa Beach)on Ambon island, Maluku.
On sunday this place is packed with locals having fun.
They play and swim, eat the famous Natsepa Rujak, play the guitar, sing and dance. Ambonese people are known for their love of music and singing. Never saw so many talented guitarplayers anywhere in Indonesia. In the evenings people gathered together on the streets or in front of their house with a few guitars and just play& sing along. I felt very much at home here.
Two month's later after my cyclingtrip through the Northern Maluku islands I came back to Ambon and was invited to stay and spent Christmas and New Year with the very hospitable and friendly family of these girls.
Had the time of my life! Now, more then 10 years later we are still in contact.
