Next night we headed for the Japanese restaurant with high expectations given the fantastic fish available on the island. We got Michael, the local chef who ...

... I went swimming with turtles. It was very cool. We were in a little lagoon and were feeding them seaweed. I was trying to hold onto them and let them take me for a ride but it was not working. It was an awesome experience. That evening we decided to try somewhere else for dinner and went to the restaurant in the hotel next ...
