|This boat was right next to us when we came ashore|
by dinghy. Fish is drying for dinner already.
We decided to miss Nagekeo Anchorage go right trough to see Komodo Dragons for couple of days North Lombok ahead of time and all the other boats and than into Bali for some civilization which we needed. As soon as we arrived in Labuan Bajo we were innandated with tour operators wanting to take us to visit Komodo dragons. A “NO”as an answer is not what they want to hear. They come before the boat is anchored which is not an a good time. Anchoring is important a lot depends on it. Well than there is the waiting game and this one lasted for hours like 5-7 hours in hot sun was nothing for them to wait.
Challenging and not what you need after a long trip.
The city itself was smallish and dirty. We did find one good restaurant which we had no pleasure in dining in ages. The prices were high and the food and ambience great.
The next destination now Komodo National Park.
