I have a dilemma. More accurately, I had a dilemma; only time will tell whether I made the right choice.

There’s an interesting thing about food in America. I was expecting food to be quite a bit cheaper here than in the UK. Instead, the prices are essentially the same, but you end up getting an incredible amount more, maybe double the portions in the UK. So this means you end up with the somewhat [...]
