I had lunch at the King Head in Santa Monica with fellow Kiwi friends Mat and Nadine. We had the specialty bangers and mash. I particularly like the old English pub meals, and for desert we were all very excited to have rhubarb crumble and custard. The Americans really don't know what they are missing out on.
Mat like myself has been lucky enough to just win a greencard in the greencard lottery....... Congrats.
