bungalow, comes from the Hindi word 'bangla', which means Bengali. Can anyone tell me though why a house is called a house? nothing much to report this

DO you know why a bungalow is called a bungalow? It goes all the way back to the 17th century, when British expats in India, working for the East India Company, really liked the local single storey thatched houses. They were built in the Bengali style and the name

month on the property front, but I am sure this is just the lull before the storm. I can tell you that interest from expats returning to the UK is hotting up, primarily it seems over ongoing healthcare – or perhaps the pending potential lack of it. Apparently, Cyprus, a very popular Brit destination, has introduced a form of our nHS funded by taxpayers, but it seems they forgot to tell the

doctors as hardly anyone has signed up for it. If you retired to Cyprus you can get medical attention using the European Health Insurance Card but there is no guarantee this will continue, dependent upon how Brexit goes. now that seems a shame, you work really hard your whole life to save your pennies and live the dream by retiring to the sun, but then have to come home thanks to a bunch of idiots “managing” our country`s affairs.
