I've been living in England for two months now, and it's hard not to recognise the various ways English and American cultures differ. To be sure, there are some freak moments when I just wish I were walking through an air-conditioned Walmart in 100-degree weather, but it's not that often! This is a list of things I love most about England.
1.) Ribena: it's blackcurrent squash (drink concentrate) that puts our obsession with cranberry juice to shame.
3.) Cadbury Flake bars - invented by the Gods.
4.) Cadbury fruit and nut bars - ditto.
5.) Names of places
6.) Rain: I like rain.
7.) Twinings Tea
9.) Flower gardens
10.) London - all of it
11.) Pizza Express
12.) Costa Coffee
13.) Wagamama Japanese food
14.) Nando's Chiken
15.) The English sea-side
16.) Chish and Fips
17.) Public transportation system
19.) Village churches
20.) Schoolchildren in uniforms
