Things we still haven't got used to

Things we still haven't got used to

After three weeks, it is still amazing to us that...

★ Petrol is so cheap

★ It gets dark so early, and still it is hot!

★ There are no English-language bookshops that are any good

★ To get across the road we need to walk for 20 minutes (to the underpass under the 5 lane motorway)

★ Shops show no street address in the phone book, only PO boxes

★ The strange dichotomy between complex bureaucracy in the public sector with efficiency in private enterprise

★ People are so friendly!
