A Few American Idiosyncrasies

Maria Guzenko is from Russia and is currently studying in the U.S. for a degree in translation. On her blog, Maria lists some quirks she has noticed about American society:

Only in the U.S., she says:

* can a person who has no house still have a car

* people go out to eat sandwiches and subs, which in other country you wrap up to eat for lunch at work

* a “small” ice cream equals European “large”

If it sounds like she is bashing America, don't worry, she says. A similar post is coming soon about her home country of Russia.
