Falkland Islands - Culture
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Imagine being away from home. Not just away from home, but far away from home. You're sent to a deserted island, hundreds of miles from the nearest land, and thousands of miles from your home. You're one of just a few people from your homeland on this remote island. How would you feel? What would you do or bring to make yourself feel better? Would you try to build a new life and lifestyle, or make your new home like your old home?
 
2     That's a problem residents of the Falkland Islands have been faced with. The Falkland Islands are situated off the extreme southeastern coast of South America, not too far from Antarctica. It is an overseas possession of Britain, and most of the people who live on the Falkland Islands are British. Problem is, there are thousands of miles between the Falkland Islands and British Isles.
 
3     When British explorers first arrived in Falklands in the 17th century, there wasn't anyone living there at the time. It's been said that some South American natives came to the Falklands in canoes many years ago. But when the British arrived, no one was there. So the British imported their own culture.
