Thoughts from abroad
Captain Bill with you today.
Now Norma suggested I might give you a brief vignette of my impressions so far of Ms Camille's home island.
Grass tastes a bit odd and you can't get a nice cup of tea...but things can never be the same as at home. Luckily my reputation as a top captain seems to be smoothing the path somewhat and opening a door here or there. It's quite clear when we're walking around that people are stopping to have a look at us....possibly they're a little overawed.
There seems to be a slight over indulgence in kissing people that you've never met before...not my sort of thing at all. Still I feel that we're bridging the cultural gap. Of course Ms Camille is prone to over reaction at any hint of something going wrong but I think that can be put down to her foreign nature. So far, so good, as far as I'm concerned.
Right, must catch up with the others
