Amtrak launches Black Friday, Cyber Monday sale


In this file photo taken December 3, 2010, komodo dragons search the shore area of Rinca island, a part of the protected area of Komodo National Park. Tourists keen for a close-up look at komodo dragons in their natural habitat could be hit with an alarming bill, if one Indonesian politician gets his way. It was reported on November 23, 2018 that the governor of East Nusa Tenggara province -- home to the world's biggest lizard -- has proposed charging visitors 500 USD to see the endangered species, about 50 times the current entrance fee for foreign tourists at Komodo National Park.
