Great reading - but not enough of it! I for one am all in favour of long tales on DID.

I even had to stoop to doing my expenses whilst the music was playing....

Many thanks Carol.

It's always fascinating to read fellow migrants' stories- ah the food! It explains immediately why so many migrants felt it necessary to create restaurants all over their newly anointed country.

I really feel like you could have added so much more to your story but as things go, so could everyone else here- a very fine job!

A wonderful read, Belle Lettre. And it was doubly excellent to hear such a cracking and long-loved set of tunes from another person's perspective as well. Cheers!

This was excellent!
What can I say? It's nearly impossible for me to imagine shuttling between Lebanon and the UK as a child. Little could be more foreign to me. And then latching on to the Stranglers and Public Image and the rest. Fascinating.
