An Introduction

Just to introduce ourselves and what our quest is about.

I'm Theresa, A 35 Year old Unix System Administrator from South London. This is me here sitting on a bench out side the town hall in Mazo. Now where is Mazo you ask? Well Mazo is a small town on the Island of La Palma in the Canaries.
It's our aim someday to come and live permanently on the Island. This Blog will follow us as we look around the Island (physically when we can but most of the time on the Internet).

This is Helen, My partner. Helen is also a Unix System Administrator. It was Helen that first introduced me to the Island of La Palma back in 2003.

Helen was first introduced to the Island when she went to work for the Royal Greenwich Observatory which has several large telescopes based on the Island. These are on the Island due to the extremely good observing conditions which exist due to the location.
