My mother has just returned from a holiday in Egypt. Yesterday, we had our catch-up phone call, where she told me about the holiday.
Amidst this conversation she started one sentence with 'We've got a lot to learn from the rest of Europe...'
There was a bit of a pause at this point which gave me room to wonder what was coming next. There are plenty of things we could learn from the rest of Europe. Better attitude towards alcohol? Relaxed attitude towards prostituition? Armed police? I wasn't sure which of these controversial topics she was about to tackle (especially since she hadn't been on holiday in Europe),
'We've got a lot to learn from the rest of Europe when it comes to eating fruit'
Apparently, you should have seen the amount of fruit the French and German holidaymakers ate each lunchtime.
