From The Outside Looking In

Saturday April 5: a day out in Kent visiting a farm, training

I miss meat and blood very much. Not vegetables because they are food for a woman. There is milk here but blood is better because it gives energy. English tea with sugar is good and we tried Coco Pops, but the nicest food is croissants.

I wanted to see your cows because they are very important to us. But these were small. The horses were like a big zebra with strange metal feet.

The weather here is strange. From a window it looks warm but outside it’s very cold. It is better when we’re running or in the shower. We heard about showers before, in a briefing about the country. It said be careful – when the shower is hot it is really hot, and when cold, really cold. This is true.

A nice and short look at some first impressions on English society from someone with completely alien cultural views.

Yes, this is much how I see you folks too.  But instead of blood, I love oil.  Greasy, powerful, energy-dense, oil.

Hey, maybe I do get you after all…
