Visiting the traditional islands
If you have planned your stay, or will be planning your stay to be a liveaboard diving trip, try to see if your boat has any agreements with the local islands. If you are privileged enough, your boat might have permissions to beach on the local islands were other civilians are not allowed. You can walk among the small villages. The school kids will rush to your side eager to meet and greet you and be your tour guide for some pocket change. You could even be invited in to see a local dance and sip some cava.
Serenade and Torch lighting ceremony every night
At our resort like at most resorts there was a serenade at the poolside every night followed by a torch lighting ceremony. What started happening was that the kids got neat the torches around the pool and as the guy came to light them he gave the fire stick to the kids and let them light the torches themselves. There were abouy thirteen torches around the pool, maybe more. The drums were played and the kids got to do that too.

Anthony decided not to light it. I think he felt it was more for the little kids.
