I am a stranger in a strange land (an Englishman living in Australia). Although many things are culturally connected, the two countries are as different as they are the same. I suppose you don’t really notice the similarities so much, but the differences really stand out.
I was doing some work on the categories list of the True Local website yesterday and it highlighted how far away from home I am. Example categories include:
- Squid jiggler
- Drug plant growing
- Dingo hunting or trapping
- Snake catching
- Prostitution services
Either illegal, irrelevant or just plain strange, I doubt if any of these appear on the UK’s Yellow Pages.
