February's news in NAC

It seems that previous residents from South America have taken the freezing Neringa weather and -15ºC with them and left us just some melting snow.
Now NAC is fully inhabited with our new residents: Henrik Heding (SE), Laurie Lax (UK), Justin Tyler Tate (JAV) and Allison Guy (USA/NL). Kalin Lindena from Germany just took the ferry from Klaipėda to Kiel. Months, residents, languages change in the Colony, and not the English has change the previously Spanish temperament.
