I was half expecting, but didn't want, this to be a US bashing thread. That said, I was expecting a couple of US posters to go for 'attack is the best form of defence' route.

Anyway, as I sit in T5 awaiting my connection I can report it's not much different here. Other than the chicks understand my jokes.

Oh, and george town was lovely. The town planner must have been a fan of Tonbridge Wells.

I always enjoy visiting the US (although US immigration is by far the worst 'welcome' to a country I have ever experienced around the World) because the place is absolute bananas.

I can't see how you can generalise about Americans when the diversity between East, South and West coasts makes it feel like you're in a different country each time...although none of them seem to understand a UK midlands accent - I have more success in Saudi!

...having said that though I think the tipping culture needs an overhaul

when typing on a 2 inch keyboard think I care?

Anyway Georgetown was nice enough. Dull, but nice enough. I tried to get pissed by the harbour but just couldn't get the volume of that crappy beer inside me.

Perhaps from now on we should ask one or two probing questions before allowing people on this forum:-

"Have you ever visited one of our great universitiy towns - Oxford, Cambridge...Hull?"

That would smoke the bu***r out!

That said, back to the land of the Gypos next week and I'm looking forward to that more. Not that I could ever ever live there.
