What's pretty amazing is he actually recognized you. Or was it you that recognized him?

Nah man. Basically i walk past the Sinn Fein headquarters everyday on my lunch break at 1 and a tour company that works in the city always has its group outside talking about the Troubles etc. I had added Marcin on Facebook after i bumped the Facebook topic here a couple of months ago, and since he is travelling and uploading a loy of pictures, i sorta knew what he looked like. So walking down that day, i seen his group and since he is quite tall, he stood out a bit from the rest of the group since they were all smaller in height. Also since he wears glasses it soon became definite to me that it was him.

Yep. It was quite easy to start a conversation when we met up too haha. Sometimes I meet people and the entire experience is awkward but this wasn't.

US us has many accents. More than the UK. Sometimes people have different accents for living on the opposite side of the state. The most extreme accents come from the southern states and northern states. Boston NY or brooklyn are all very different. Southern accents you can tell what state they are from in the south by it. West it's more subtle. Utah we often leave the T silent. Mountain becomes moun-ain

you can tell which city someone's from in the UK. Hell, what town if you want. There may be less accents but as far as I can tell there's more variety.

I am completely useless at recognising/differentiating between them, too. This is even more true of places closest to me. Glaswegian accent aside, but only because that is highly recognisable.

My aunt always gets really cheap flights from ireland with ryanair, on average her ticket costs 5£ so if youre serious about it i would definitely recommend checking their website

Defo. I'll be putting some money aside to get the SC2 team together for a launch party n'all (if your flight's gonna cost about £300 though, you can lick a ball!)
