  • Abstract

    Friends, Elsie and Netta, talk about how they miss Jamaica, where they were born and grew up, despite having lived in the UK for many years. They discuss how they like to spend their time with friends and family, the places to which they have travelled and what they would do if they won the lottery. They describe family life before their husbands died and how much they miss them now. They talk about their Christian faith and reflect on the state of the world today. They compare their first impressions of Cardiff and their experiences of living in the city.

  • Description
