... the Muslim family. Again these are simply my own personal experiences, and please don't take it literally and feel that is how I feel about people in general. You all know I have friends from all over the world and all religions. I still wish we could all just believe and accept that we need to be good to each other, that we should treat one and other as we want to be treated and that's that!

... a waiter on hand to supply the necessaries. About 75% of the guests were returnees and many had been coming there for years. One couple had been coming twice a year for 30 years!! This meant that several people had become involved with the local community and did a lot of good work with the children’s home and the school. However, to new bugs like us the hotel operated a bit like a private club. We laughed about the silver and gold turtle awards that were presented ...
