Things Taken for Granted in the U.S.

One question I’m asked most often about my trips is, what are some of the differences you noticed about other cultures…or more specifically, what are some of the things people in other cultures have a hard time believing about the U.S.?

The link below has a pretty good list — it’s a compilation of 16 individuals describing things that are unbelievable to foreigners / taken for granted by Americans (by Michael Koh; Thought Catalog):

One of the things that sticks out most in my mind about America is how homogenous the laws are from one part of the country to the other, and how orderly things are in general — especially traffic. I could go on, but the list above highlights them all better than I could.

Happy reading!
