That being said, have any of you guys gone through the US/UK ex-pat type of thing? I did an apartment-hunting visit to Manchester a few weeks ago, and loved the city and the people. It helps that I didn't look any different (and was once even called a Yorkshire farmer by some chick at a pub, quickly rescinded when I opened my mouth) and tipped publicans...So, if any of you have any advice about living overseas, I'd be glad to hear it. I'll be over there for at least two years (the terms of my appointment). Probably should also try to get British_Pharaoh and dazindiansfanuk to get me some info on the best ways to keep up with Cleveland sports over there...
