Hello and welcome to this week’s Fuertenews
One thing that is very apparent is the many different nationalities that now visit the island with the many new air routes. Visitors from Italy, Germany, France and many from Poland.
I painstakingly, in my best Spanglish, tried to explain something to a fellow visitor, getting a little frustrated with his lack of understanding when it was pointed out to me that he was Italian! Certainly time to brush up on my language skills.
Thanks to all who have responded so far to “the professional meet up” I am looking to get together for our first meeting in October as I myself am off the island in September. Please continue to respond, there are already many good ideas on offer to be discussed. Change is always a great way forward and don’t forget “a smile is accepted in any language”
