Rinca Island, one of the islands that make up the Komodo National Park and one of the islands that is home to Komodo Dragons, has a very ethereal and strange landscape.  Dry and dusty with savanna grasses, but with odd tropical plants sticking out all over the place, including parasitic trees and palms.  Some of it reminds me of Australia in a way, especially the dry grasses and shrubs, very little of it reminds me of Java or Sumatra.  It’s certainly unique.  We did go during the middle of the dry season though, so it might look different at other times of the year.
