Last Thursday changed the way many of us foreigners here feel about the U.K. It doesn't feel like home here anymore. It's definitely not the same warm and welcoming place I came to so many years ago. And even more perplexing -- and wounding -- I am questioning if I really ever knew this place I love and idealize. Like so many from abroad, the toxic campaign and its aftermath have me questioning if I'm really all that into the United Kingdom anymore.
