  • I wanted to know something more of the history of the island and its settlers. In the House there is a "Grout" of things from different periods (a teletype!) but very little of historical material. And also made us take pictures quickly to bring us to the end of the tour and make us "a typical dance" so we stopped them tips "to the negritos to their soft drinks" so we were told. A lack of respect for those who like us of cultural issues in travel
