    ... learned to speak English so well. He told us that they were taught English in high school. He is now a fisherman living on the island. As we walked down the beach, he provided insight to the fishing life. He explained that the fishermen (about 25 of them) would live there for a few months and then head back to the mainland for a break and returned again.
