We're on a little boat with about 15 other kids. Most of them are French or French Canadian, but there're a couple Americans, too. Fun! We saw some dolphins. Good sign.

We went to the islands Palau Moyo and Palau Satonda. Trekked through some rivers and waterfalls. Lotsa hermit crabs and butterflies. Went snorkeling a bit. Saw some more dolphins and flying fish. Awesome! Oh, we saw another of those huge geckos, too.

We went to Gili Lawa so I could climb a little mountain. We went snorkeling at Pulau Lasa, an island with red sand (from dead coral?).

We went to Palau Komodo, and we saw FOUR Komodo dragons. Pretty fucking sweet. We saw some deer, too, and played a lot of drinking games.

We went to Loh Buyua (crocodile island) on Pulau Rinca and saw about half a dozen more dragons. We also saw buffalo, millipedes, and monkeys.

We did some more snorkeling and went to Labuan Bajo, the big port city on the west side of Flores. It's funny.

We had one last dinner with our boat crew.
