Carpet, carpet everywhere and not a drop to fall to the floor without soaking into it

Now that I've only got a few more days in England I'm feeling in an evaluative mood. I thought I might put up couple of entries about the bad the good and the bizarre of this country.

My major gripe (yes I have to start with a negative) about England is the abundance of carpet. I'm not entirely against carpet as such but I do think it should be confined to places where it can be kept very clean. And yes, I do know it keeps things warm.

Carpet can be found here in restaurants, pubs, kitchens and bathrooms. I'm looking forward to tiles, wood and apartments where you take off your shoes before entering. :)
