Life in Belfast part 1

People ask me what life in Belfast is really like..

There are a few ways to answer this question, but i’d like to start with the following.

People in Belfast still whistle. People are generally happy. They whistle  because they are happy as they walk from A to B.

I hadn’t heard people whistling in London for years before I left, people in Turkey told me whistling was a sign of the devil having taken over your thoughts…

and in all honestly, quite impromptu though it may be, it was the sound of someone walking past my window, whistling that urged me to write this post.

stay tuned for part 2
