It’s a bit like being at a silent retreat. No one talks to each other (unless you’re friends and came together). I mean I don’t know if it’s the same all over, but this is just my first impression. We arrived here to Gwithian farm Friday afternoon. This morning (Sat) I went to do the washing up at the communal washing up sinks. But no one said hi. There were smiles and nods – but no sound. Even to the extent that the couple who were next to me at the sinks, where walking back up as I was walking down again cuz I forgot something, were laughing together and then stopped as they saw me and gave me funny looks. I don’t know what was going on; if they were actually talking and laughing about me, or just thought it better to be quiet when walking past a stranger on a campsite ?!
But later in the day it seemed better to me. Especially when I had Casper with me. He makes people smile, so they say hi.
We’re gonna be here for a whole week. So will see if it gets better.
I never saw those people again. And from there mostly everybody was nice and spoke to me. But like I said, when a kid is with you people smile, and sometimes laugh.
