Wales with 4 m's and a silent q, but no vowels!

2006-01-24 Western Wales
After months in Bridgend/Cardiff working for the NHS Wales, I finally got taken to some meetings in smaller towns and look what we stumbled upon on the road...

Up top: Yes, that's really the name of a town. The Welsh people are fantastic - their language is a nother matter. The consonant to vowel ratio just doesn't work for me.

Above: We found a castle. Wales has more castles per capita than any other European country. That was to keep out the English, but us South Africans are welcome.

Below: well, even if we're welcome doesn't mean we obey ALL the rules.
