    If you are a tea drinker be prepared it's difficult to get a decent cup. Most places hand you a 12 oz. cup of hot water and let you choose your tea bag. When I'm traveling I find getting a cup of properly made tea is close to impossible, I usually give up and drink coffee.

    I lived in Cali before, so I know the American drill They drink soda, not tea, a "bum bag" is called a "fanny pack", and a small coffee is a large here.

    I'm based in London. There's loads of things that you can't get in stores here, and that I have to order online. Powered supps, as an example. And they're really expensive.
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    With a prescription apparently, sure (antibiotic)

    I just remember having a "What is that? we can't get that OTC" conversation.

    Lol.

    Let me think: grass fed beef being the norm, no fluoride in the water, GM food has to be labelled... there are some advantages to being in the UK!

    Cali's got the hemp oil and the weather though, so we lose ultimately.

    Yeah, you're right. There are some advantages to being in the UK. I remember good sandwiches at the airport (that's pre-primal). I've never been to the UK, except the airport, had a couple hour layover at Heathrow. All I remember is a lot of going up and down escalators, wondering who the hell designed the place.

    Have you shopped in any of the Polish stores, or Lidl? They do great pickles! But maybe you're accustomed to the American interpretation...

    I was friends with some Scandinavian exchange students in high school and the food they said they'd miss the most is cornbread since it was so different from any bread they'd ever had. I really can't think of anything else you can get over here that you can't in Europe though the cost might be higher over there.
