What a perfect party-time for these dragons is the Pulau Rinca all over ...
During day time the Komodo dragon hunts for its food, well, just wait at a particular place for its food. That is just walking by ...
So at night they sleep just like humans. Be aware ... they donot sleep like us and always on the alert for food, that is just walking by ...
Dress Code: That means humans are not wanted in the neighbourhood of these dragons! No dress code ofcourse !!!
So enjoy your day-time, and take care at night-time. There are a lot more of other animals walking, crawling and hissing around ...
Keep your voice down, especially fr the dragons. These monitors feel the noise with thier tongue, and there is no escape from it!
sleep tight ... sweet dreams
Without any organised or arranged entertainment, the main option for your evening is drinking!
MSY Katharina has a well stocked bar which worked on an honour system. In the fridge was a selection of local and international beers which were chargable and soft drinks which were included in the price. Wine (a rather rough local rosé wine) was included with the meal and you could purchse international or local wine by the glass or bottle. The bar did have a stock of spirits, but we drank them dry of Vodka half way through the cruise.
Badrain would pour your spirits and wine and you'd help yourself to beer, then you marked them on a chart on the wall and settled your account at the end of the cruise. For once we didn't actually have the longest bar bill!
There isn't a great deal to do in the evening when you are based on a boat. You are rather limited on your choices!
Everey evening we were on the boat, the sunset was spectacular. The sun goes down some time around 18:30 and disappears very quickly as you are very near the equator.
Try and include some mountains or foreground interest such as a passing boat.
Underexposing your shots by half to one stop saturates the colours. Try bracketing.
Make sure your horizon is level.
The sunset is often more attractive if there is some cloud cover around.
Dress Code: Whatever you feel comfortable in. Remember to cover your legs and arms if you are moored near to shore as there are malaria-carrying mosquitos in this area. Use a good insect repellant.
