Some Observations

A few random observations:

  1. British breakfasts are rather good. Eggs, a grilled tomato, some good pork sausages, thick back bacon and potato scones. Although I do skip the baked beans.

  2. British business lunches are terrible. I always dread going to meetings where lunch will be served. They always serve these awful little sandwiches with the grossest fillings, and since they put out so many different kinds of these sandwiches, its not like there is a whole lot else to choose from. And since the people you are meeting with are paying for it, you are obligated to be seen eating something. I usually end up eating a lot of fruit. I wouldn't be surprised if some people thought I was a vegetarian.

  3. British people are short. My boss is 6'2" at the most, but if you had heard people (including himself) talk about him, you would have thought he was a giant. This confused me a little. It took me awhile to realise this, but British people are just short.

  4. When I first lived in Scotland, I thought that British Coca-Cola tasted rather poor compared to the American stuff. I had thought that I had since got used to it. The other day I bought a 1.5L bottle of Coke. Turns out that it is just as poor as it was in 2007. Nothing has changed.
