J and I have just returned from a wonderful trip to one of my very favorite places: London.

I heart England with the biggest of hearts. It’s such a lovely place, and so full of British people!

A few reasons I love the British:

They drink tea on a regular basis and as a social event.

They speak with those lovely British accents!

Thomas Hardy…Jane Austen…Gothic literature…Philip Larkin…

They are so nice and polite.

They have a vegetable called “rocket”.

The buildings in London are low enough that you can see the sky.

They say things like “uni” (university), “pudding” (dessert), and “loo” (the bathroom).

London is officially added to my list of places to live.
