There are many things that I’ve encountered so far that are the same as you’d see in the US, but also very different. I thought that you may enjoy hearing about some of them, so as I can I’ll post some here. Same: This morning I saw 4 inflatable Santas, each with white skin and blue eyes. Different: They were hanging above the stage at church! Same: Yesterday I saw 2 guys playing foosball. Different: The foosball table was out on the street!
