Difference between UK and America?

I’m pretty bored right now and I just have to ask… I’ve always been fascinated with the UK and I’m just curious as to what the difference is between America and Britain. Just things they do differently (ex: drive on the opposite side of the road) and… that’s about all I know laughs so please help me out here…

Answer #2

in England, when I was a little girl going to boarding school; I fell in love with the lush green country side and the brightly painted buses and black cabs in London. All candy was called ^tuck^ and my little closet in the girl’s dorm was a ^Judy Box^ lol lol … my school mistress was forever editing my letters home and if I wrote ^mommy^, she would put a big red mark through it and force me to write ^mummy^. Miss Reed was a royal pain and I remember getting a failing mark on a geography paper because I said there are seven continents. She said there are six and that the Panama Canal changed nothing. Fortunately 90% of my memories are positive. As a 16 year old I returned to England for holiday from my Swiss boarding school and saw some of the best theater in the world and shopped till I dropped. The best Indian cuisine in the world is to be found in the UK, not to mention ^fish and chips^. The people are warm and friendly if you are. I love their sense of humor and rich history.
