Cross Cultural Cognition.

Hello Gentle Readers!  I've been missing in action for awhile and guess where I turned up? Heidelberg,Germany.

As part of my cheapskate2country World Tour I've noticed some troubling differences between We and They.

1. Diet Coke is called Coke Light.
2. Bottled water is either 'still' or 'with gas'
3.Soda/pop is not as fizzy here.
4.There are virtually no Pepsi products here.
5.The above items do not taste the same as at home.
6.You can buy beer glasses full of beer coloured gummi bears and white gummi bears for the foam on top.
7.Germany is much more civilized than we are.
8. You can buy real beer ANYWHERE. *

I had this great post written in my head last night and now I'm totally blank.

au revoir!

* This may not be troubling for some people.
