I rack my brain but can't remember the name of the Kemptown pub where I took this photo. Breaded lamb strips and Thai spring rolls were advertised. In any case, the barmaid, in her early 30's, was very friendly. She told me she studied sociology in college, and was a native of Portmouth, famous for the 6.57 crew. She complained about the increase of overweight people in the UK, "People used to do all kinds of outdoor activities, but now they mostly stay indoors." I reassured her the obesity problem in England was nothing compared to the US. Her parents had a 12-week holiday in Virginia, and that's where she was conceived, so she has been to the States, sort of. Her mom loved Virginia and didn't want to come back. The barmaid said "hon" so much, one might think she was from Baltimore.
She said people would come in to leave a CV, hoping to be hired as a bartender, whereas in the past, they didn't need a resume for such a job.
