Danu: So could you talk about another place of Indonesia, a very famous place.
Widuri: Oh, another famous place is Komodo Island. Have you heard that?
Danu: Komodo Island? No, this is the first time for me to hear about Komodo Island.
Widuri: Komodo Island. So this Komodo Island – komodo is an animal. This is a very rare animal.
Danu: I see.
Widuri: I don't think you can find komodo in other place but Indonesia.
Widuri: Hmm. Komodo, its shape is like a lizard.
Danu: I see.
Widuri: Yeah. It's like a lizard but it's very huge. You know, the size is like lion size.
Danu: So big.
Widuri: Yes. It is so big.
Danu: Is it a dangerous animal?
Widuri: Yes, it is. You cannot touch them.
Danu: So there are so many komodos in Komodo Island.
Widuri: Yes, it is. The Komodo Island is the only one island where you can find komodo. If you can find komodo in a zoo in Indonesia, that must be from Komodo Island. And this Komodo Island is also very beautiful. They have, you know, pink beach. Do you – have you heard about it?
Danu: Pink beach?
Widuri: Yeah, pink beach.
Danu: So is it pink colored beach?
Widuri: Yes. The beach, the sand… the sand color is pink. I think it's because of the coral, the pink coral who came to the beach.
Danu: Oh, that's very interesting.
Danu: So if there are komodos in Komodo Island, people cannot go to Komodo Island?
Widuri: No. If you go to Komodo Island, you have to be guided with a tour guide because you cannot touch them. You can only see the komodo from a distance.
Danu: Oh, I see. That's really interesting.
