So we flew out last Saturday, spent 24 hours awake due to a flight delay and the time difference (we are currently on mountain time so 6 hours behind England) and looked rather a mess.
AND NOW WE’RE IN ‘MERICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fortunately for our tired and jet lagged selves, we have been staying with an English couple – Rosemary and Chris – who live out here in the pretty part of Fort Collins called Old Town. I think we have won them over by bringing English delicacies not available in the US (Bovril and Cadburys chocolate) but the favour has more than been returned with how we have been looked after.
As I write this, we are having breakfast and about to go out and sign the lease on our NEW APARTMENT (pictures coming in a post soon). We have also already in our first three days accomplished – in order: some sleep, getting a social security number, getting US bank accounts, getting a US phone number, exploring, learning to drive an automatic (ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THE ROAD?!….) and going out to celebrate at one of the best Pizza places in Fort Collins.
Notice that I am drinking a local craft beer called Fat Tyre which is a little bit like a cross between old speckled hen and Newcastle brown – but much more tasty.
