Laboan Bajo. Flores Island, 5/9-6/9.

We arrive at 8 a clock in the morning after sailing over two nights and days. We stayed on board the whole day even if the marine came in there boat and told us to go in at 10 a clock. We were tired and needed to rest. In the evening there was a big welcome party at the hotel close by the anchorage. Raymond was there but also the minister of tourism. We got good food and also t-shirts mm. Early morning we went into town to shop food etcetera, together with Sven and Lisa. We got a nice local burger on a burger-bar. We sailed immediately when we came aboard for not to arrive to late at Rindja Island 6-7/9. Beautiful mountainous landscape al the way to the anchorage. 17:30 sundowner and of to bed. Up at 6 in the morning to get early in for a walk with a ranger to see the Komodo dragon. We were the first group out walking after we had taken a few picture of an old Komodo dragon laying there close to the rangers huts. The dragons come close to the ranger station sometime to get water. They are not fed and live as they choose. We took the long track and saw a lot of animals like monkeys, dear, water buffalo and birds in the wilderness. Back on Alexandra we sailed to a little island close to Komodo island Gililawa Darat. We shared a mooring with VOLO and Randev├ąg. We took a snorkel tour hanging after the dingy and enjoyed a beautiful coral reef! Sundowner and grill at Randiv├ąg.
