For some reason, Komodo dragons are confined to the small islands of Rinca and Komodo. I don’t understand the reason of their punishment but the only way the lizards could see me is me going there. OK, any creature in this world should have a chance to check my awesomeness and I didn’t want to disappoint them. It was hard work to find a public boat going there, but after lots of asking I succeed.
The not very comfortable boat took more than 4 hours which I spent mostly playing domino with new friends. One of them was a park ranger and proposed me to stay at his place. He thought he could make a lot of money and asked me 4 times the fair amount. It took him a long time downing the prices to come to terms, even I had to pretend leaving. Finally, he accepted and he and his family were very nice to me.
So finally I saw the huge geckos. They are a friendly lazy bunch that seem to have a good stress-free life. I was a bit disappointed as for the entry fee I’d expect sex with one of them to be included.
Apart from the reptiles I was gladly surprised by the island beauty and the charming village. I had a great time there with the children playing football, ping pong, swimming… They were very curious and it was an awkward moment when they wouldn’t stop asking onanism related questions.
