My father informs me on the way to the airport there are ten myths about London that aren't true, but everyone believes they are.
"It doesn't really rain any more in London than it does in New York," he says from the front seat of the taxi, putting on a big smile as if that will make up for ripping me away from my friends to spend a year in England.
"Oh, really?" I say, pretending to act bored, when really I'm terrified about going to a new school where I don't know anybody and I have no idea how to speak their language. Sure, it's English, but an entirely different brand than we speak.
