Went and met the Iraqi businessmen and women attending Jane’s conference on Monday. A valentine’s date with thirty people. Hmm.

Very nice people though - all of them. There was the group who wanted to try clubbing, there was the group who couldn’t get out of their deep blue funk. Then there was the conversation about languages. This group had all learnt English as a second language throughout most of school and all spoke it very well. Then I learnt they like French, Italian, German, and even Latin. ‘Latin?’ I asked. ‘Yes, we love Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin. Latin Music is very cool.’ Ah. So not that good at nuances of English just yet then.
