Favorite thing: When I first arrived in St. Helena I was amused, and OK, I admit, occasionally exasperated, by things in my new home. Wherever you go, life is like that, and you have to enjoy the good bits and apply as much good humour as you can muster to deal with the rest.
For the first months I kept a weblog, and you may find it interesting and/or amusing. I've stopped maintaining it now, but it is still 'live' at http://notesfromsthelena.blogspot.com/.
It makes more sense if you read it in order ....
