Back in Britain

Having spent nearly six years abroad I returned to Britain in March of this year. Things have been a bit hectic but I have a few observations:
  • Brits are obsessed with buying and selling houses; unlike anything else that you buy, house price growth is measured on a month by month basis. The press seems to think that anything other than rampant house price inflation is a sign of a weak economy.
  • Being able to walk to a nice pub that sells decent beer is one of life's simplest pleasures.
  • Bread is better in Denmark.
  • Steak is better in Texas.
I will add other observations in the fullness of time...
