Well, OK, not quite. But today is the anniversary of my arrival in the United States, or, more specifically, Colorado. Yep, I’ve now lived for 30 years in the US. Originally, I was going to stay for possibly three years, but it turned out that after those three years I’d sold my flat in Hammersmith and bought a house in Colorado Springs for my future wife and I (and, as it turned out, three kittens). Still makes me laugh: selling a one-bedroom flat in London to buy a three bedroom house in Colorado Springs.
So, I’ve lasted ten times as long as I’d originally thought. And it goes without saying, I have no desire to go back and live in London again, let alone England. I’m set in my ways and, perhaps, just too American!
