Wai Noe

A young boy is looking after the goats in a field near Wai Noe. He comes upon Wai Noe and decides to take his clothes off and descend down into the well. After that he is missing for three days, only his clothes remain beside the spring. After three days he returns to the village naked and tells the story that he had descended into the spring as he had heard a woman calling him telling him which way to go. She guided him through narrow caves under ground until suddenly he arrived at a big cave and water source (Wai Lia in Baucau) where he saw this woman waiting. She was very happy to see him and offered him food and other things. But he was naked and embarrassed so as soon as he could he escaped running all the way back to Gariuai.
