    ... despite our poor knowledge of spices. We took the obligatory photos, of course. Another highlight of the spice tour was the opportunity to watch a local villager, who called himself "butterfly," climb a really tall coconut palm with his bare hands and feet.

The island now has about 100 giant tortoises with a good breeding program. Just out from prison island we went snorkelling.

We got to spend three nights at a resort near the northern tip ...
