People do appear to be genuinely interested in you as well as your money.
The weather has been getting increasingly over the last few days and sticking close to the pool the best option, but I had a trip to yet another store with our host today to stock up some essential supplies.
The store is Vons (which I think is Safeway though you have to wonder why they thought the name Vons might be more appealing)
‘Can you find what you want?’ was the obvious commercially motivated question, but that done they slipped into genuinely interested conversations, especially about our English accents.
They weren’t fazed even when the two middle-aged men explained that we English are quietly infiltrating the country and one day we’ll get it back and throw you lot out.
I also confirmed that we were indeed the first advance of the elite counter-revolutionary guard and the girl smiled sweetly while looking over our shoulders expecting our nurse to arrive at any moment.
Perhaps Nevadans are just friendlier than other Americans (they seem to think so) but people do genuinely appear pleased to see you. Even when they aren’t.
