Do you think many Britons are unaware the island of Ireland exists?
I've noticed on tv quiz shows it rarely comes into their minds as a possible answer to a question. Name a place that begins Dub.... Dubai? Dubrovnik? It brings out the poet in me: " Mystery island lost in mist Even by the sun, rarely kiss...

I don't necessarily mean one's personal/emotional past or about history. I mean what did an area one knows well look like at different periods, what were the people like and their lifestyle, would one see similarities with ancestors? I supp...
