Product description

Review

... what sets it apart from others tackling the same subject is that it is a first-hand account by one english family - and their dog - who lived in the USA for two years. I loved the paragraph on `missing things', which justifiably includes quality British newspapers and reporting, strong tea, and good bread and butter. Under overall praise, she finds it refreshing that children are welcomed and catered for almost everywhere; that shop assistants have a very good attitude; and that cleanliness is important. Enormous quantities of food are an issue, and restaurant atmosphere may be lacking, but Julie points out that a huge range of inexpensive eateries can be found and no one sniffs at giving you a doggie bag of leftovers (even if it's not for the dog!). Other chapters cover all the practicalities, from getting your pet into the USA to education, health, financial and shopping matters. A great book for anyone considering moving or having to relocate to the USA, as well as for those who are just curious about life in America.
