Having again been invited by Brits for a coffee and Ms immediately saying "sorry we only have instant".I dont know if I just look like someone who drinks real coffee or they say that to everyone.I have never asked. I dont drink much coffe but Heike does and reckons cup for cup real is cheaper. There is a huge variety of flavours and prices and different ways to prepare it,Bodum,paper filters,Espresso cans etc.An English friend,well travelled told us that the Nescafe blends were different dependant on which part of the world you were in.The reason Brits are tea drinkers is because your government in the past made a huge import tax on coffee to protect their tea growing colonies most of which were run by establishment people.The opposite is true of the Mainland European countries whose colonies were coffee producers. Most of the large financial and insurance companies started their lives in the coffee shops in the City of London. On another topic.We had a British woman on her own with moho and she had a dog,not one of your handbag accessory dogs that seem to be popular with the motorhoming community but a proper dog.On asking what kind of dog it was she replied 'a Rumanian rescue dog".I asked what it rescued only to be told it didnt rescue anything,she rescued the dog. Oh were you in Rumania? No I got it in Britain where a group of animal lovers bring them from Rumania. I thought how very charitable of them and she said she paid 500 pounds for it. Well it would appear that Spanish and Greek beach dogs are no longer "in". And we now import our strays from Eastern Europe.
