I used to play a little game of guessing where people are from.

English people- very pale skin. Scottish and Irish people, even paler, like snow.

You can tell how many days they've been there by the gradual pinkening, up to bright red.

Im Irish - and you should've saw my back last year on our first day in Bali - l sort of forgot to cream my back (usually lm so careful!) l was 2 tone red on back and off white on front!! It takes me the 2 weeks to colour up and then l go golden (at least thats what l see or it maybe the fake tan l slap on!!)

he he;

I've seen canadians in Cuba with the big thermos mugs.... but before I went last year, I spoke to a canadian lady on the internet who told me to get some, i did, and might have started a trend with the english as well, the canadians thought I was one of them with me mug!

I don't know if it's an english thing, or a me thing, but I put lots of ribbons on my case, and flower stickers, so I can identify it! Might put a union jack on, just to fit in with our canadian and american friends!

I just worry about catching flak from people that will immediately judge me when I tell them i'm from America.

ah i know - I get such crap for being American here in the UK. From everyone! My friends, workmates, strangers I meet!

So I just threaten them with F18 Bombs and remind them of June 1944 or 1781

I think they wear sticky buns on the sides of their head.

Whilst in the UK, I used to "get crap" for being a "convict from the colonies" (Australian).
