To the person in Jersey who checked out my blog today, I’d like to thank you for introducing me to your country. It is a bailiwick, a form of territory presided over by a Bailiff. The historical origins of the bailiwick have its roots in a form of landsharing. The owner of the land leases the land to a collection of individuals who elect a bailiff to receive profits and distribute them among shareholders.
Things people in Jersey like to do: listen to folk music like that of Nerina Pallot, attend the Branchage International Film Festival, and eating fried dough, delicious seafood and creamery treats made from Channel Island Milk.
