Rain. Lots and lots of rain. And terrible food! I studied abroad in England for a year and I lost 20 pounds because I hardly ever ate. I couldn’t stand the food lol.

Also, tea and biscuits 🙂

@whybee:  Three things I really love:
1) Awesome music such as the Beatles, Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd

2) Tea….I love tea!

3) Beautiful accents. It doesn’t matter what the debate is about, if one of the debaters has a britsh accent, they automatically sound right, lol.

The Queen, rain and fog, punk music, tea, accents (some of which I can’t understand at all), double-decker buses, pubs.

Edit: and sarcasm! One of my British friends is the most sarcastic person I’ve ever met.

@whybee:  I just remember the food being really really bland. It may just be because I’m American and everything here is over-seasoned and over-salted, but I love my salt and seasoning!

ETA: although England did have more awesome Indian restaurants than anywhere else I’ve been, and I love Indian food, so I ate at those a lot.

ETA again: Oh. My. Goodness. I forgot to say CLOTTED CREAM! I am obsessed with it, and you can’t get it here in the states, which is seriously the most depressing food story of all time. I even tried to make my own one time (miserable failure, btw).

The royals, bad teeth (sorry), sophisticated accents, rain/fog, expensive costs of living, those fuzzy tall hats on the red-uniformed soldiers.
