I am English. In 2011 I was living in Glasgow, Scotland, with a previously unknown flatmate, she was from Crieff, Scotland and was telling me she had a friend she had met while living in Palma, Majorca. He friend was from Luderitz, a small town in Namibia. So we called her "Nim".
Anyhow, her friend Nim came to stay with us and we became good friends, I helped her get a job and to work in Scotland and she stayed with us for 3 years. Eventually we all moved on, and I moved to a house I bought in a small town in the other side of Scotland, called Forres.
