Finding Yourself In A New Country

For a couple of days I went around London using its public transport system. I missed out on this pleasure the first time I came here. Apparently it is the best way to get around the city if one intends to live and work there. I must say that it is. All you need is to map out your journey first. I used the tfl.gov.uk website to do this and it is fantastic. After you have mapped out your journey, you stick to your plan... just like in trading. After spending some time in non-english countries, this experience made me appreciate the fact that I was able to speak the language of the country. At a certain level the brain is able to absorb so much more environmental information unconsciously when you are able to communicate with people, read signs, maps and billboards. Tourists and other travellers must have thousands of very interesting and funny travel stories to tell. I really respect immigrants who manage to succeed in their newly-adopted country even if they begin with nothing, speak little of the language whilst being humble enough to adapt and challenge pre-existing religious beliefs and cultural practices so they can co-exist with everyone else in their new country.
