Barajas Airport, Madrid - 1st September 2002. I had two airplane tickets in my hands, one to go back to my country El Salvador and another one to continue my adventure in Europe.
The idea was to come to England just for 6 months to learn English so I took the plane to Gatwick Airport and kept the other ticket in my pocket.
2 and a half hours later I was on a train from Gatwick to Victoria Station, Central London...
So, I've been here in London for exactly 4 years now and just because I'm still learning English, I'm still in England!
Well, actually is because of my girlfriend, she thinks my country is a bit too far, so we have decided to settle down here.
