Every culture has its stories.  Many say that you don’t really understand the people of a country until you understand their stories, myths, and legends. Likewise, symbols are born and shaped from the stories. This undercurrent, which is often unspoken, affects the cuisine, the art, the rituals, the entertainment, and especially the life perspective.  Take a look at some of the legends, stories, and symbols of the islands that we will be visiting, and learn how they have contributed to the people, their life style, and their point of view.
