I'm very excited to announce that my American nieces are coming over to visit in the summer, and I am relishing the opportunity to impress them with all things British. You know, like Baltis and chicken korma. :-)
If you had to make a list of the quintessential British things, what would they be? Here are a few of my favourites:
- curry, cream tea, hot cross buns, tea cakes, rock cakes, puddings and pies.
- castles, stately homes, waxworks,
- indoor waterparks, October illuminations (neither very useful for summer visitors though)
- treeless hills and mountains, canal tow paths.
Anything else I've missed? Answers on a postcard please! ;-)
