On Friday afternoon, I met Heather at her house. She greeted me wholeheartedly with a cup of tea and the most delicious shortbread I have ever had.
We started talking about travelling, as you do when you find someone who is, like you, from a different country.
Heather has been living in the UK for a long time but is originally from Zimbabwe. She told me some fascinating stories about her family including her holidays spent in Mauritius, her mother’s homeland.


Vendredi après-midi, je retrouvais Heather chez elle. Elle m’accueillit chaleureusement et m’offrit une généreuse tasse de thé avec un petit sablé raffiné.
Nous nous sommes mis immédiatement à parler de voyages ce qui est courant lorsque deux expatriées se rencontrent.
Heather vit depuis longtemps au Royaume-Uni mais son pays natal est le Zimbabwe. Elle me raconta des histoires fascinantes sur sa famille dont ses vacances à l’île Maurice, pays de sa mère.
