Write A Port Tip

Nothing to see on this island, locals were not friendly at all, shopping was not great. We tried to rent a scooter there, and after being told noone had it, we found one place that did have them. When we initially asked him, he said he had none. Then he asked to see our license, when he saw the U.S.A. license, he said no this doesn't authorize motorcycles even though it does not have it written anywhere. But when he saw another person after us had a EU passport he didn't evgen ask for the license.

We didn't do the tour of the monastery (we aren't too interested in St John!), and there is almost nothing else to do on this island. We got off, shopped in a few souvenir shops right off the tender, and got back on the boat.
