Wales is not a country

April 14th, 2008

Here in Morocco, I’m often asked what country I’m from. When I say ‘Wales’ all I get in return is a puzzled look. So I try in French, ‘Pays de Galles’. Ne comprend pas. Then in Spanish, ‘Galles’. Nada. Last night, the shopkeeper couldn’t get it either. I remembered that I bought a little diary […]

Downwards. Well, grab me a chicken drumstick because that’s exactly the humiliation that we suffered in our Ford Focus hire-car whilst trying to locate our […]
