We have been on the move for the last week. When I first arrive somewhere else my impressions are always coloured by what I know from life at home.
First thing I noticed is that a cup of tea is half the price of a cup of coffee here in the UK. It's the complete opposite in France. There coffee is the cheaper option. By far. Their tea comes in muslin bags. In South Africa a basic coffee and a cup of tea are similar in price.
We went into a computer store as we have been having a problem with one of the laptops. And lo! Their guy on the helpline was based in Cape Town. I wanted to speak Afrikaans on the spot. I know someone who works for a UK mortgage company in Cape Town. She does applications and deals with customers from a Cape Town office.
