    Your top five things from your home country

    Can be anything

    Home country: UK

    1: Family- an obvious if rather cheesy nomination
    2. The ability to hop in a car, on a train or bus and be in the countryside for walking and pub exploring.
    3: Second hand book shops- the smell and general atmosphere just can't be replicated.
    4: Diversity- not going to be popular with the UKIP lot but I for one like walking around town and hearing many different languages and seeing different nationalities and cultures.
    5: The peace and quiet. I've mentioned that Mandalay is bloody loud- I've loved being able to get a full nights sleep. That said, my place in Thailand was also much quieter than Mandalay,too.

    They champion falsehood, support the butcher against the victim, the oppressor against the innocent child. May God mete them the punishment they deserve
