Stuff I ❤️ about England

  1. People still read newspapers.
  2. Londoners and folks in the countryside are pretty friendly and helpful.
  3. Most UK folks are mutually fascinated with us as we are with them.

  4. The fashion. So chic. Tailoring still matters.
  5. There's a decent national rail system if you want to venture outside the city, and the London Underground is quite easy to get around in.
  6. There is a lot of halal food.
    As a Muslim tourist, I usually starve. I think I gained weight on this trip! I ate real buttermilk fried chicken at a restaurant for the first time in my life.
  7. English tea.
    Can we please adopt tea time in the US?
  8. The food just seems more delicious.
    I think the equivalent of the FDA must be stricter, or culturally there just isn't as much tolerance for crappy food and food products. So much of the stuff we ate was fresh and grown or raised in country.
  9. Toilet stall doors go all the way down, and there are no weird gaps in between. I mean there is ACTUAL privacy.
  10. Castles!
    Need I say more?
  11. National pride.
  12. The architecture.
  13. The art.
    The National Gallery has one of the best collections of my favorite artists all on one floor. So great if you're short on time and don't want to feel overwhelmed.
  14. Ok, I might need to move.
