Amerika ist wunderbar!

Last week I visited the US. This is my third visit to the country. Since people are so friendly there, it is hard to feel foreign in the US but I still cannot stop myself from finding the following things strange about the country.

  • They first write the month in a date.
  • On US$ coins, they don’t write the values in large numerals.
  • Flights at the airports are listed in the alphabetical order of destinations
  • At the airports, they still use am/pm for time.
  • On a whim, they can drive 100s of kms in some direction and come back.
  • After every 30min, waitresses ask if everything is ok.
  • Their smallest coffee cup is thrice the size of my expectation of a small coffee.
  • They have huge parking lots.
  • There are not as many MacDs in the US as I imagined.

Otherwise, the US is fun to visit.
