Hi, readers. This is a post from Sam. First, you might be wondering about the title. It is called 46 pence because today I gambled and won 46 pence so I figured why not. Today was a good day, we nearly finalized the house rental, I gambled and won money, and I bowled. Now I am going to list a lot of surprises we've had over the past few days. Did you know that if I just walk a few blocks there is a restaurant called Chicken and Pizza Land which sells chicken, pizza, kebabs, and burgers. There are also 2 Chinese restaurants, and Indian restaurant, and a burger place. So it's not just fish and chips. Did I also mention that if you are able to put money into a slot and push a button you are allowed to gamble. In the words of my mom, "We won't be having a lot of Ben & Jerry's ice cream there." Guess what the airport was filled with? You got it, Ben & Jerry's vending machines. Plus, half of the houses we've gone to see were advertised furnished but weren't. Also, there are places called zebra crossings where cars must yield to pedestrians. Hope you enjoyed my thoughts. Please comment, Sam.
