I on the other hand am fully immersed in a country that is going absolutely crazy over the World Cup right now among whispers that they have a chance to go all the way. Since the day we arrived we've been surrounded by St. George's Cross, better known at the flag of England. This week it looks like white and red has just been spread everywhere time 50!!
This was the post office today...if you look closely just over the right shoulder of the man in front of me that's a TV playing the opening ceremony.
Our neighbors just across the street!
A restaurant just down the street from us...
They even have those silly car flags over here! I've seen these on scooters and motorcycles as well.
And these are just examples I took pictures of in a matter of an hour of walking around near our place today...it'll only get worse as the World Cup continues if England performs the way they should.
The first game for England is tomorrow versus the USA (eek) at 8:30pm GMT (2:30pm CST). I've been practicing my British accent, I don't want to be around if the US actually beats them! ;o)
And for your enjoyment, one of the many many commercials I'm tortured with every 10 minutes on TV.
