I think Grrl has a good perspective on this topic. And those of us that had the opportunity to travel. I found London to be close as a culture to the USA, after Canada. Somewhat. And they have those cool accents.
I called an operator there once. Looking for the Hard Rock Cafe in London. I went.
I thought I was looking for "Hot Spot" the way the operator said it to my ears. She actually said, "Hydes Park"
