There are a lot of cultural differences between Britain and Mexico. For example, in Britain we have a light lunch at about 12:30 or 1:00 pm. We just eat a sandwich or a salad. It is very unusual to each lunch at 2:00 or 3:00 pm! That’s too late for us! We have a large meal at night, at 6:00 or 7:00 pm.
Question: What type of food do British people like to eat for lunch?
Another difference is that we are usually on time! If someone invites you for dinner you should arrive on time, or no more than 10 minutes late. And you should bring something to share, we normally bring a bottle of wine or a box of chocolates. If you don’t bring anything to share you should apologise for coming “empty handed”.
Question: If you do not bring anything to dinner what should you do?
One thing that Mexicans and the British both love is beer! Britain is famous for its pubs which have a friendly, relaxed atmosphere where you can drink a beer and chat to local people. In Britain if someone offers to shout you a beer say yes! It means that they will buy a beer for you! Make sure you say “Cheers!” before you drink, that means “salud!”
