The journalists have met the media at Gilbert House on Monday where they said that their preconceptions about the Falklands had been shattered.   Rosario Castellanos said mentioned that normally small towns with 3,000 people were financially strapped with few resources.  Not so with the Falklands where the society, albeit British, was vibrant and seemingly affluent. 


 


Through Sarah Crowley, they spoke of wanting to meet people who attended the British School in Montevideo in the ‘70s and recalled the Darwin’s visits also during that time. 


 


Horacio Luis Varoli wanted to know the Falklands from a tourist’s point of view and was keen to speak with people in the tourism industry.


 


All mentioned that there seemed to be an easy-going nature about the place and people had security with doors being unlocked for months at a time as well as friendship and warmth of the people.  “A viable Community,” said Rosario.


 


While in the Falklands the journalists visited Volunteer Point.  On Monday they visited Stanley and they will go to Sea Lion Island as well as visiting the Darwin Cemetery and staying at the Lodge.
