Just a few things I noted about British English vs. American.







Conductor (Train)


For Rent

 To Let





When I showed my rail pass to the "guard" he invariably said "That's lovely".
And they have these areas called the "downs" - in a couple of tours they suggested we "go up to the downs"

The hotels don't have air conditioning, and they are over-heated. In Brighton, though it was 80F outside, the hotel's heaters were turned on, it must have been 90 in my room. Trains were also too warm.

The "To Let" signs really got to me. I wanted to put an "i" in between the two words. I think I'll photoshop one. Later.
