People watching is a great pastime when sitting at a sidewalk cafe in Venice or drinking coffee at a stand up bar in Sienna or standing in line in Luxembourg. Overhearing their conversations is just as amusing.
What constantly amazes me is the number of times I hear something like…”in America we get faster service” or “I want my coffee just like I drink it back home.”
Well…the bottom line is, you are not back home. You are on vacation in Europe or some other country. You are there to experience the culture of that country. Things might be done differently. But, isn’t that why you travel…to experience another country and their way of doing things?
Enjoy the differences and have fun.
