Bubble in the desert

A blog I started whilst on a GE "Bubble" assignment in Nevada. I'm back in Cambridge (UK) now but still miss the desert and my friends out there.

More problems with US English - Suspenders!

Apparently, in the US, 'braces' are called 'suspenders'...

Now that really is a mistake. THESE are suspenders...!

This still doesn't help me get some BRACES for my skiing waterproofs. Much as it seems to be the in thing for the crutch of your trousers to situate itself around your knees, it doesn't help one's skiing.

Cambridge Paul.
