American Expat Living in London, Meet Chris (Expats Blog)

Just because Britain and America share a common language, doesn’t mean there aren’t significant cultural differences between them. If you’re coming here from the States, don’t assume things are the same as “back home.” You are in a foreign country. And when you do encounter differences, don’t immediately assume that the Brit way is inferior or even an adaptation. Continue reading
