Today was the first time that I was out with a group of people where I was the only foreigner, this might seem strange considering I’ve been living in England for more than a year and a half, yet it is true. I had a close experience when I visited my friend Richard in Liverpool, although in that visit I went with Carlos who is Mexican, still we all went out with Richard’s mates, the biggest difference is this time I was alone, and there where more girls than boys.
English tend to be very polity people and although they appear friendly it is very hard to get in their circles, or at least I think so (the fact that I don't drink alcohol might have an influence on this). That been said, I do have some English friends and thus I get these experiences of a real English night out.
It is quite fascinating the English society and its social behavior, I’ve observed it for quite some time, but today I was in the first row and with access to all the information. To be fair it is not as straightforward as I initially thought, again societies tend to be more complex than they originally appear.
Honestly I am not passing the conclusions on to here, but I will say I was surprised.
On a more personal note it was just what the doctor order and it also confronted me with the sort of situation handling that I need to take into all aspects that have been troubling me for a while. Shadow of the day (Linkin Park) comes to mind but I am not putting it in here, honestly it might be interpret in the wrong way, so never mind this bit...
Anyways this is it for today, a socially positive day, which is always a good note.
