EXPATS from all nations settle here in Tenerife.
Although Don and I have integrated into the local area and have friends from several countries, our nearest bar is an English one. The British accents you would hear there include Scouse and Geordie, Southern, Midlands, Cockney, Devonshire and of course Irish and Scottish. This was the crowd that gathered to celebrate my birthday last year. (I'm second from the left in the striped dress.)
And finally, a poem about another expat.
I was born in Australia and taken to England while still a baby. Betty was a gift from my godmother when I was born and I would rescue her from a fire before any of my other possessions.
