Stories from the Island we love.

This post aims to recount some of my experiences and some things I’ve seen on the news. Some people ask what it is like here and I don’t know where to begin. I hope this blog conveys some of what life is like here…………..

News. Woman drives up to a traffic light on a scooter. Her labrador jumps onto the DHL driver’s scooter, shocking him as he tumbles over. The woman yells at the dog who comes back. She gives the dog a slap on the head. The dog jumps back on her scooter, light changes, she drives off…… DHL man gets up and gets back on his bike without a word.
