... short trip in the glass bottomed boat.
Once there we went for a walk along the street. It is a quiet, simple place, with very little facilities. Gusti came with us, telling us a few things about the island, but mostly just hanging with us to make sure we were ok. The island reminded us of Rotto, with the cabins and laid back lifestyle.
