Lovely read. It seems to be very similar in the UK, but the porch element isn’t here. There isn’t a porch for miles, in fact I’m not sure there are any at all. So you have to include a willingness to open your door to a stranger OR a good ‘safe spot’ which is generally your door stop about 5 minutes before they are due to arrive, with the money through your letter box. Bit odd. Bit shut-in looking through cracked blinds. Still wonderful.
