Things that happen in Europe

Last summer, I wrote a few posts on ‘Things That Happen in the East’ because I felt that my surroundings were so foreign, so culturally shocking, that they deserved comment. Well, folks, I now write you from even farther East, where I am constantly shocked by millions of culture watts. Comments ensue below.

1. Internet.

Haha. Just kidding. That never happens here (she types from her corner at four in the morning, doing all she can to conserve and exploit bandwidth).



At first I was like, “Ew.” But then I my friend pointed out that it’s no different than washing our hands after. Maybe we’re the gross ones for not using them. And then I was like, “Ew.”

3. Paying to use the bathroom. Really inconvenient when you need to hurl.

4. Being comfortable in your own skin. And only that.


5. “Pocket maps”

Puts a whole new spin on having deep pockets

6. AND Pocket Coffees. Little chocolate coffees, I had heard of them in Italian class..the reality is better than the legend.




So, once you get over the initial shock, things are pretty tingly. What a life, huh? Lucky to get to live it.

A presto,
