Tristan housing: never let flax get in the way of a story

Life on Tristan must be even more cosy than it previously appeared to the outside world, if Business Today magazine is to be believed. “The community is no more than 11 flax-thatched cottages,” it says.

With 262 residents, that works out at about 24 people per cottage.

The revelation appears in a sidebar headlined Silent Frontiers,¬†about remote islands. And to accompany the Tristan item, there’s a picture of somewhere else altogether.

See it here (page 56 Рbut readers may have better things to do with their time).
