I think bizare facts, it depends from what side you are looking for.ReplyDelete
When I speak with guys abroad, they do not understand why kids are not helping parents financially and vis versa. Why students are coming out totally in debt having rich parents and paying 6-7% interest to a bank on it?
There is a lot of odd traditions, but highlighting them just reflect inability to be tolerable and learn about new cultures and surroundings.
