When you move to a different country and you think about all the new things you'll have to get used to, you usually think about the weather, the landscape, picking up a second language, making new friends ... What I wasn't aware of was the fact that there are little things to learn and discover every single day! The wide variety of products here, for instance, is something that keeps amazing me till today.
Booze in bottles shaped like guns.
Possums with tire treads on their back :/.
I actually think I want a pair of these, hehe.
Not a football, but a tray with snacks to eat while watching football.
I certainly love the variety of seasonal products :p. There always seems to be a theme in the stores. In October everything is orange and pumpkin-spiced, before Easter it's all about bunnies and colorful eggs; right now, you can find hearts and Valentine's products everywhere.
Pet friendly Christmas ornaments at Pet Smart!
You can custom make your plates here, so you sometimes see funny ones. This one's very clear but other times I can hardly figure out what they were trying to say, haha.
It's amazing how doing something very simple such as getting wax at the pharmacy can be puzzling! I couldn't find the kind of wax that I wanted, so I randomly picked this one and to my surprise, when I opened the box at home, I found it comes with a kit of shapes so you can use them ... erm, you know, down there, hahaha!
This has nothing to do with moving to a new country, but this year I've also learned that you should never forget a bottle of beer in the freezer ... Because it'll turn into a chicken, hehe :p.
As I mentioned it before, portions in restaurants are huge! And they get pretty creative with the ingredients they use. Here's a crab burger from The Yard House.
I put one of those little balls in my mouth believing it was ice-cream, only to find it was actually butter! :/
It's very comforting to know there are restaurants where I can fin the same food I used to eat back home! :P An empanada and a milanesa sandwich from Empanadas To Go, yum!
I always have my camera in hand when we go out, because I know I'll always see something that will catch my eye :p.
Are there any products that even you, Americans, find awing? :)
Hope you're all having a great week! ;D
