AH’s first impressions of England

He had been to a big city before. It was called Nairobi and had one railway station. Now he would travel to another big city in the country his parents called “home”.
The city was called London, and he would have to find his way to London station, where he would be met by his aunt. Only that his mum told him that there was no “London” station. This strange city had 200 train stations!!!
That was not the only mind-blowing thing about London. The people there had very peculiar habits. They built their houses so close to the roads that they didn’t have space for a veranda, let alone a proper garden.
Even the weather was strange. A blue sky did not necessarily mean that you could run about in shorts and T-shirt. Sometimes a blue sky required a thick jumper, long trousers AND a coat!
What a relief to see something familiar. Some people kept cats, and if people had cats, maybe they were not so different from the people in Africa after all...
