the lovely english countryside
the english countryside is everything i thought it would be and more: sheep, and in such magnitude, i was ecstatic (aside from a zoo, i had never seen a sheep before), narrow one-lane country lanes that winded in and out as plants grew over the road, jolly good countryfolk hitting up strangers for conversation, lovely flowers, adorable little tea shops: it was all too perfect. i wouldn't mind retiring in the english countryside, i just want it to be sunny.
