More Thanks are Due
Bokka: Town of Strangers
Subtitle: In England, everything is easy.
And perhaps better?
In the last 14 days, Marcus has asked total strangers for
- Tips about the area
- Advice on Buying Property
- The Weather
- How to Open a Bank Account
- About Property Refurbishment
- Directions to the Pub
- The local walking path
- About Supermarket points system
- Local Cycling Club
- Running and Cycling Routes
In All Cases the great British public have been so so helpful. I even got chatting to a local specialist car dealer (in Oakham) who gave me his card and told me I could contact him to send me any property we found and he'd pass on his evaluation to us. Wow.
A good friend from London on hearing about the mandatory Swiss Wealth Tax and Healthcare costs told me: Are you f****ing crazy, come home immediately.
So whilst the jury is still out, the return to Blighty becomes more likely with each day I spent back in wonderful, wonderful Engerland.
