On the last night they had the delightful idea of holding a party for all the staff on Necker and Moskito [Island] they had come into contact with. Alongside [Branson’s daughter Holly] and myself, they were the first up onto the bar dancing with us, getting the party going, making everybody feel at home and welcome. There were a couple of local women who looked a bit lonely on the sidelines, watching other people enjoying themselves. Barack and Michelle made a point of going over to them, inviting them into the group and dancing with them. They made time for everybody.
Obama dancing on a bar?! Be still our tiny hearts.
Amidst some casual political talk, the group also played tennis, pool and a spin on pool called snooker, according to Branson.
“I quickly realized Barack is a superb natural sportsman, and I suspect he’ll be beating us all on the tennis court on their next visit,” he wrote. “I’m proud to say I won our chess duel, though!”
