    We ate breakfast at the Rose Cafe, part of our hotel accommodation. They have very good cereal!

Over 250 children and adults are fed here daily in an industrial area on the edge of shanty towns.

    ... while the new development on a lagoon island is either very smart or very ugly - depending on your feelings about squeezing as many expensive holiday homes as possible onto a pristine island in the middle of a beautiful bay.
