In-Ha, South Korea I got used to many unusual things I found in ritain, but one thing I still can t understand is why so many places still use separate hot and cold taps at the sink rather than a mixer tap. You have to fill the basin to get the water at the right temperature, but then you can t wash your face properly because the soap stays in the water. It s much better with the mixer tap because you can leave it running. In fact, what drives you mad even more is if there s no plug. Then you end up either getting freezing hands, or burning them, or trying to move between the two. Useless!. ob, anada There are, of course, lots of things you notice in Germany, which are different to back home like steins, litre jugs of beer which people drink, not to mention the waitresses that sometimes carry three or four in each hand. Those women have wrists and forearms of iron! However, the thing which always comes up sooner or later in conversation with foreigners is German toilets. Unlike our traditional bowl with steep sides down to the water, most German toilets have a shelf, which makes it difficult to flush it all away straightforwardly. I had a friend who used to really complain about them but they never bothered me!. Ed, UK I don t know how widespread some of these things are because hinese people don t tend to invite you to their home that much you arrange to meet out somewhere. The flat I rented when I lived there was furnished and there were a couple of things that struck me. The first was that there wasn t an oven, which reduced the scope of my cooking. I also found a massive meat cleaver, which was a bit confusing as I associate it more with a butcher! One thing I really took to, though, was the rice cooker. I should ve brought one back.. Maggie, Ireland I was staying with a friend, Sheila, and she had this thing. It was like a tall mug, but without a handle, and made out of horn. It also had this metal straw. It was lovely. She told me she d picked it up when living in Uruguay. You brew this tea called mate in it and then drink it together. She s fallen in love with the thing and has taken to using it quite a lot, but she didn t persuade me to have much, though it was a weird taste. The other thing I saw while I was with her was her son playing with a spinning top. It really took me back. t school there was a mad craze for them.
