 ‘I began this paragraph by writing of lighter things and before mentioning incidents which have amused us tremendously I would add that half a dozen and more concert parties tour several open-air stages. They are reminiscent of the seaside show on the pier; one is aptly named the ‘Kokonut Grove’. These shows are enormously popular.’
