Quirky Cultural Differences (#2)

  • I have seen at least four people here cross-country skiing. In August. With the poles, and wheels attached to their skis. (To Europeans: this seems entirely ridiculous to North Americans.)
  • Dorms on campus are uncommon (although not unheard of).
  • Museums consider winter to start in September.
  • A line of people, as in for a ride or waiting to get into a club, is called a “queue”.
