My stay in England has been full of new experiences and emotions. Good or bad, everything is different here!
In Spain, we talk about English punctuality, but what a surprise when in my first day of work I had to wait for the bus more than half an hour! I have to say that from then things have not changed a lot… English punctuality is just a myth! However, it has a good side; I have learnt to be very, very patient!
Who has not heard about how bad English food is? I have to say that it is not that bad, just not as good as the food of the rest of the world! And what about the times when you eat food? I know that in the rest of Europe, you have lunch at 12pm but in Spain, I have had breakfast later than that!
I also think that we eat much more than English people, and sometimes I feel a little bit fat when everybody is eating a sandwich while I am with my two dishes. However, the worst thing here are the high prices when you go out! I had to reduce considerably my beer consumption. I think that if I stayed here for a long time, I would start to distil my own beer!
What really surprised me is the weather. It does not rain as much as I expected! Before leaving Spain, I bought wellies and a new umbrella but I have to say that I did not need them at all.
After three months here, I have realized that the best thing in this country is its nice people. Especially my workmates who have make me feel like home. I still remember my birthday when I had just been here for one week and I found two cakes and one card waiting for me at work. I felt so excited! I just want to say thank you very much for these three months. I will miss you!
