More things I miss about England

4) The smoking ban - Everytime I go out here, even for a coffee, I knock a few days off my life expectancy through passive smoking and end up with smelly clothes.
5) Flat, uniterrupted pavements - You cannot understand how difficult it is to walk around here until you actually try it. Pavements here aren't designed for people to walk on, they're just there because the designers couldn't squeeze another parking space in. The actual pavements are full of foot-high kerbs, holes and random bits of concrete sticking out. I trip up loads, I don't know how I've not hit the floor yet!
6) Hipsters - I haven't had a chance to laugh at the latest fashion in weeks. Burqa and dishdasha fashion tends to be a little bit static.
