I agree with Paul McCartney when he said "People are the same where ever you go", because they are. It's the little things that sets us apart. Take for example the age old addage in the USA "pedestrians have the right of way". I learned the hard way that such is not the case in Germany. Here, you only have the right of way if you can run between cars. Another small thing, what they call opened "late" here is not all that late. The latest stores tend to close about 8 pm. My final little thing to mention is that in the public restrooms, they give you, free of charge, 80 grit toilet paper. I could use that stuff on a woodworking project...
Anyway, just some random thoughts about things that I found funny.
