I totally understand you, I was born in Peru with an Italian background but never really quite fit in there, not even the music. I moved to US and met a peruvian guy, got married but we were so different at the same time; what happened next... yeap... got it.
Just wanted to drop a note here, and say I agree with you about the 'drinking' in England, BUT as a virtual none drinker, don't look in my direction, but don't rule out English girls, they are not all drunks. Be very well. K.
