YOOOOO HOOOOO Susan/Rosiemac!! This reminded me so much of you!

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to let you know that I was in a bookstore at lunch, and overheard a conversation between two women. I could tell they were British, and I butted in and said hello. They said they were on vacation here in the States. I dazzled them with the words that you've taught me. They laughed and kept saying, that's brilliant! Loved it!

Do the rest of you run into a lot of people from different countries where you live?

And i bet you never asked where in the UK they were from?!

Theres quite a few Americans going to the train station or the airport when i'm on my train going home.

Hey Susie!, can you imagine if i ever bumped into you in Ohio?!. They would just hear us scream!

Come to think of it that would be the same for any of you!, so be warned you never know where i might end up!!

Oh, if I bumped into you, there would be no doubt in my mind it was you! Just look for the woman with ripped knickers and a glass of wine in her hand!!

I guess there are alot of Americans living abroad......what a change that would be for anyone, to leave the country that they've grown up in and take on a new culture!

Well that's my brilliant (sarcastic) sarcasm. I was being flip. Sorry. You'd have to see Maple Valley......lots' o' rocks.
Yes, we actually have lots of people from other countries here. We have a large percentage of Asian nationals and also a large percentage of Scandinavians, mostly Swedish. Seattle is very similar to Stockholm, so they say. We have some British and Irish, but they tend to prefer Vancouver, B.C., obviously. I love the mix!

I would be curious to hear Sarah (Cyclesarah's) stories about her move abroad. She moved to the UK not so long ago I believe.

Arrgh - I hate modern technology sometimes. I typed my reply to this and my computer dumped out - 4 times . Now I've got to try and remember what I said - I knew that second glass of wine at the pub wasn't a good idea

I meet LOADS of people from other countries where I work. Lots of people come to visit Coventry Cathedral - the old cathedral was destroyed during the Second World War. A new cathedral has been built next door. We hold our graduation ceremonies there, and many tourists line the road to watch us process in our regalia from the Uni to the Cathedral.

EDIT: This is the bit I forgot after the computer crashed! The reason we get so many visitors is because the Cathedral and a research centre in the department where I work are now centres for Peace and Reconciliation.

I can often be found helping lost tourists at lunchtime when I'm making my way back to the Cathedral

It is often said that we have one of the best views from a University in the Country so if you don't mind indulging me I thought I'd share


The new cathedral - I can see this from my office window

The old cathedral (ruin) - view from the Uni


Looking towards the Uni

The old stained glass still in place

My lovely view from my office window

Enjoy
