The port of Stanley is attractive, with a large welcome banner hanging from the quayside. The people are extremely welcoming and there are plenty of things to do and see around the port.
Its well worth taking one of the guided tours, which include a little of everything the Falklands have to offer. Alternatively, you want wander down to the shop and buy some postcards, quickly fill them in, and post them with a falklands stamp, in a falklands red box box affixed to the wall.
The gift shop has a growing number of gifts to celebrate your visit to the falklands. Why not take home your own penguin, or perhaps a piece of wooden art, hand carved from timber washed up from the many shipwrecks, some dating back to the 1600's.
Don't expect this to be a mini UK, there is a vibrant community, including a nice multicultural mix of peoples from various South American counties. There is also some unique foods. The lamb is especially nice, and is very lean compared to lamb from other places, which may be due to the environment. There are also the penguin eggs, each inhabitant still has a right to harvesting around 50 eggs a year, and unlike hens eggs, the egg white does not really whiten during cooking but remains transparent, whilst the overall taste is said to be fishy in nature. There are also some delicious native fish, which are great grilled.
Whatever, your choices, in food, activities and duration of stay, you are bound to really enjoy this little spot of nature way down in the South Atlantic.
