So we have arrived in UK, and it was not really first time in life. A couple of things are different here, aren’t they? You’d wish some examples?
– Teach kids that cars appear from the other side when crossing roads!
– BREXIT, and the British Pound
– Cooler radio stations
– Weetabix (urkh!)
And sure, lots of other examples how the Brits and their country could possibly be characterized. Some even say that the Vikings took all the nice women away, long time ago (Kate’s great-grandma was on the continent that day). I can live with almost everything.
One thing I will however never ever understand are the separated water taps in bathrooms and in any place where civilized folks would expect to choose their own water temperature for washing hands.
Not in the United Kingdom. They give you a noble choice of three options: Wash hands cold. Burn hands hot. Mix your own temperature in a bowl which is not always as clean as in the nice Brighton Marina.
I will perhaps never understand this unique thinking of housing investors. Incredible: They actually know how it goes! Imagine, they have a water mixer in the showers! So why not for the hands?
Spotting that bl…y pair of water taps was when I understood that I have arrived in the great UK 😉
