I went to U. K... I think I fell in love.
Not with someone, but with the country, with the way of life. I've never been this affected by a vacation before.
I wonder if this is what they mean when they say you can fall in love with a person in a moment.
Maybe a part of it is just an insider looking in? Sort of like romanticizing the feel of actually living there, but not knowing that what you see as a traveller is different than what you see as a resident?

There's this poem... it's by Annex Sexton... she criticized the story of Cinderella of its fanatical portrayal of relationships and shying away from the pain and suffering that comes with it.
"Cinderella and the prince
lived, they say, happily ever after,
like two dolls in a museum case
never bothered by diapers or dust,
never arguing over the timing of an egg,
never telling the same story twice,
never getting a middle-aged spread,
their darling smiles pasted on for eternity.

That story. "
While it is surely romantic to fall in love in a week , we shouldn't let ourselves be blinded by the fog on the lens and the heat of the battle.
You were there on a vacation , you weren't there actually living like an everyday man with everyday troubles. Come back again , step in the shoes of a random joe. That is the true test if you can waltz to the rhyme of the nation.0
