... So it was that we found ourselves looking for a place called Bentar, which supposedly every Jan-March hosts a migrating mob of whale sharks in search of grub! We unfortunately fell foul to Probolinggo bus stations scamming scoundrels...

It sounded horrific so decided against it. I also didn't want to see sunrise there fighting with the crowds and jostling for a photo! I wanted to savor my recent great expedition without spoiling it. Rising at 4am the next morning ...
