Tell us how you really feel

I was corrected by an Argentine because I
referred to the Malvinas (as she called them)
as the Falklands.  But these signs in
Port Stanley, the capital, make it very clear
(and so did the locals I spoke with) just
how the people who live there feel—British
through and through.

[To see more signs, go here.]


  1. I thought this was settled by the Falklands War which England won and Argentina lost. Too bad there are still bad feelings about who controls ownership of the islands.

  2. Oh my. Long held hostilities are never good.


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
