UK's Beautiful People

Had heard a lot about the grumpy and unfriendly British people - but London, Edinburgh and Inverness were so welcoming and friendly, especially compared to my experiences in mainland Europe. In general, we found people avoiding the "Hi, Howdy" conversations that are so typcial in America - instead getting into meaningful and intelligent dialogues. For example, I was clicking a London cab, and a local couple walking by stopped to ask me how I found London, whether it was my first trip, and then going on to recommend some good pubs and hang outs!

Another big difference is the way people carry themselves. No loose fitting and torn denims hanging half way below the butts. Beautiful well-tailored clothes (like in Hong Kong), sexy denims and skirts, high boots and stockings, great make up.
