  • On The LevelNothing about St Helena is on the level except for the Saints who live here. The only horn honking one hears is done to alert oncoming drivers at blind turns. In spots where Americans would lean on horns, Saints patiently wait, Posted by paulej4 in To St Helena and Back | Feb 21, 2018

  • So long, and thanks for all the fishI've conjugated my last Saint verb (I is, you is, we is, he is, she is, it is, they is, us is). I've sadly eaten my last coconut finger and plate of pilau, and drunk my last shipwreck. I'm back Posted by Gelli in Gelli goes South-ish | Mar 27, 2009
  • Mmmmm. Tasty.I have always travelled on my stomach. Actually, that's not quite true. The only times i've travelled on my stomach have been when i've been lying down sliding down something at a great rate of – generally uncontrolled – knots, Posted by Gelli in Gelli goes South-ish | Feb 13, 2009
  • Brave. So very brave.Oh, and there was the Wedding. Following on from the previous posts late, late appearance, here's another one.

  • Seasons greetings. Well after the end of season, naturallyIt has just occurred to me that I never actually said anything about Christmas and New Year, which as they are the events which dominated my visit, seems a little remiss of me. Longer term followers will note that it Posted by Gelli in Gelli goes South-ish | Feb 12, 2009
  • Nice and settled. So why are we leaving again?So, dear friends, the S.H. comes to me last week and says “Clive, you know, it is almost time to leave again”. “What?!” says I, “Why are you leaving this wonderful place.

  • What shall we do with the drunken sailor?Every couple of years, the Governors Cup Yacht Race (http://www.thegovernorscup.co.za/) takes place. A number of hardy souls set out from Cape Town with the aim of sailing the 1700ishmiles to St. Helena as quickly as possible. Actually making it Posted by Gelli in Gelli goes South-ish | Feb 11, 2009
