An American abroadby exile
got myself some tickets to an NBA game last week - Minnesota Timberwolves v Los Angeles Lakers who are playing in LOndon. going to buy myself some NFL tickets to when the 49ers and Broncos play in Wembley this month.
It is surprising how many things remind you of home when you're miles away. Things that you wouldn't think twice about if you were actually at home. Things that you would never normally dream of doing suddenly become necessities. Like going into Starbucks in the morning. I have never been in Starbucks in my life, but now that I'm working in London i go in there every morning. And I don't even like Starbucks. I just go in there because it's American.
About my blog
I usually go to anything to do with home because I'm stuck over here and get a bit homesick sometimes, so football (proper NFL football not you're stupid soccer), wrestling, big american bands like Bon Jovi... I go to them all. I am the loud mouth american that you're probably sitting next to.
