At the airport in Philadelphia... where stereotyping took a beating. As we were sitting there, 3 "old girls" clearly from England, plopped down to wait for the flight to Manchester. They were wearing saggy polyester, socks in sandals, and carried plastic shopping bags. I expect they were in their late 60s to early 70s. So, what, were they on their American holiday to look at gardens? Go to Disney? Nossir. One promptly whipped out an IPad2, whilst her companion cranked up her IPhone 4. I shit you not. What a scream! Wish I could have got a secret picture...
We're back from a wonderful trip to the Lake District in England. I think it's a story best told in pictures, so look for them to the right of this post and also by clicking the "photo essay" tag above.
