A tourist’s perspective
We quickly want to emerge ourselves into the British culture, since we will be here for another 7 weeks. AKA, we want to be British, not tourist. Many things are going to help us achieve this. For example, buying tights and scarves, brushing up on slang by watching British reality television, attending all the free things we can possible attend, successfully navigating the Tube, and having high tea at a fancy restaurant. There are many other things among the list but these are the main ones for now.
Until then, being a tourist isn’t too bad.
I mean, making a British Royal Guard smile and wink…not too shabby ladies, not too shabby.
And I’d say that watching the Liverpool soccer team (sorry, football team) play on a pub’s big screen and cheering alongside 50-year-old men is a great start to assimilation.
