Thank you for the delightful article by Jon Gardey on England, "Lifting a Pint to Ansty" (May 12). I had to write to say it's the first really accurate account of a visit to my country that I've read. Most "I was there" articles seem to have been taken straight out of a travel brochure, but this was a wonderfully evocative memory of an England that is my home. Every detail had been noticed with warmth and humor, and the photos captured the moments as they really are.
I've been visiting Los Angeles and have enjoyed reading your paper very much. If you come to England, come and lift a pint with us anywhere. You won't be on the outside looking in for long.
