Moving from the Seychelles to London in the 1960s and how the Seychelles has changed in the past 50 years
In the second part of her interview, Elise Johnson tells us the story of why she moved from The Seychelles in the early 1960s to come to London. She recalls what it was like moving from one culture to another so dramatically different, and what circumstances she was faced with when she arrived. Elise also talks about what it is like for her now going back to The Seychelles after having adapted to London life, and how the environment and its people have changed so dramatically in the past 50 years.
Elise was born and raised in the Seychelles until she left to come to England when she was 21 in the 1960s. In this interview she describes the beautiful environment she grew up in and her happy childhood. She speaks of what it was like growing up on the island. In that time the population was extremely self sufficient; they grew all their own food. She also recalls some of the traditions, what an average week would consist of, the cuisine and dating.
