Fish n Chips vs Hamburgers (EDITOR'S NOTE — Here's the other side of the coin. The June 13 edition of the Panama City News-Herald Society section.carried an account of school attendance on a base in a foreign country, written by a young air force dependent in Lakenheath, England. Diana Dobbins compared the lifestyles, denoting the differences and praising some aspects of her situation, while admitting to "homesickness." Now we hear from a young Englishwoman residing in Panama City who has kind things to say about Panama City, giving praise where praise is due to this locale, and then she concurs with Miss Dobbins, that "There's no place like home," for Englishwomen, also. And that means England, in her case. Mrs. Linda E. Bowman writes:) — Ludelle Brannon, Women's Editor. DearSfr, I read with great interest your editorial on 13 June concerning the contribution by Diana Dobbins on living in England; I felt that I had to comment on sdme of the comparisons she outlines. Like Diana, I think that there is no place, of course, like home. Howeyer, there are pros and cons of living , anywhere, and Panama Citians are fortunate indeed, in many aspects. • ' ' I love the beautiful beaches of the Gulf, but miss the green, sunny English countryside'ih summer. Our garden "at our 150-year-old cottage is positioned on the side. of a beautiful valley, with apple trees providing shade during the Warm summer months.

We've found the American people to be very attractive, generous and friendly, though we would like to listen to a broad English accent! American food has been an interesting experience for us; being totally different to ours in England. We had never even seen egg plants, squash, collard or mustard greens before, and rarely see mangoes, limes or watermelons (all of which are imported, and hence exorbitantly expensive). Corn is also expensive, . although obtainable, but is never used to make such delicious foods as corn bread or "hush puppies." Grits, too, is an amazing creation to us "Limeys." I would like to know if other Americans visiting the South for the first time would know this particular dish. Incidentally, Diana would not have eaten Yorkshire pudding for dessert. It is a savory batter cooked in the juices of roasting beef, and is served as an accompanying dish. Stratford-on-Avon is certainly a beautiful and historical little town'; but becomes full of tourists during the summer. The usual facilities are oh hand for them, but then residents of Panama City know all about tourists, don't they? We have had a truly mar­ vellous time living here as your guests. We have been treated like one of "you'all" and been made most welcome anywhere we have been. Thank you. Finally, I would like to add that If any of you feel that you are stuck in a boring routine—travel! Diana and I appear to agree that many fascinating experiences result, and yet, when you do return, whenever it may be home is somewhere that can be appreciated to a fuller degree. Sincerely, Linda E.
