And how did you travel here?

Flew. Oh they allow you enough money to fly. And there's £300 of your money the rest is mine. That's the attitude, so literally came in here with two suitcases, three bags, three boxes and it's only recently that those three boxes I sort of chucked out. I still had them up there. I don't know why. Just a sort of reminder, you know. One contained a sewing machine, she's still got her. One contained my trophies, animals that I had shot. I used to be a good hunter there as well. Not for pleasure, for eating. I think there were four or five trophies. Some animal skins. I've still got them and one was crockery that had been given to us as our wedding present. Still got that. Three boxed, two suitcases, £300. That's all I had. No friends. Strange county. Cold miserable weather.
