Abertawe trwy lygaid dyn o Iran yn y chwedegau:

Browsing my late father’s papers recently I came across a strip of passport photos. There are two shots, and he’s looking too far up, then too far down in each one, caught out by automated flashes. It doesn’t matter, though, as this is not an official document.On the back he has written, in Farsi, “In memory of a trip to Swansea, its beautiful beach, colourful boats, and foreign folk. At a bus station, Sunday afternoon, 3 July 1966.”

As a child of this country I do a double take at “foreign folk” – he was the foreigner, wasn’t he? It’s all relative, of course. Including the appeal of Swansea. I’ve never been there, but through that Iranian stranger’s gaze it seems a picture of charm. A sunlit riviera, alive, friendly, a repository of quaint customs, like beach donkey rides and cockle eating. A place as exotic in its own way as the palaces of Persia.


Under the gaze of my late father the city was full of exotic charm – a reminder that the newcomer often sees what the local doesn’t

Cyfle i ddathlu William Jones o Lanfellech, Ynys Môn, y person cyntaf i ddefnyddio'r symbol pi, a hynny ar Ddiwrnod Pi Cymru.
