To have any certainty of seeing the Komodo Dragons, you needed to have something to attract them. Sadly and to my eternal shame, this role fell to the poor goat seen here, which we bought from the village. (No, I don't still have the receipt for tax purposes).

We carted it on the boat from the village to this rather idyllic bay, and once ashore, the two local men withdrew quietly to one side and dispatched it. Then followed a trek of about half an hour into the island, to search for a likely place to wait and hopefully see the dragons.
