Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Andrew Ang Yuan Hann

After some amazing scuba diving around the Komodo Islands in Indonesia, I went to see the wild and dangerous komodo dragons. First I saw a lone water buffalo. Next thing I see are the skulls of the buffalos which have been eaten by the komodo dragons. The villages collect the skulls and display them for tourist. It gave me goose bumps before I even saw the dragons.

Location: Komodo, Indonesia.
