a few baffling things of "Amreekah"


to begin with...for a person coming for the first time to stay in Amreekah notwithstanding the short visits to Singapore and Dubai, is an eye opener....
the initial confusion was mindboggling...everything was opposite from what we did back home in India.
we were prepared for the driving on the opposite side of the road-but the door opening from the other end???
the gas knob turning on in the opposite direction and the electric switches confused me for more days than i like to remember.
and the taps...aah the taps.....
no matter which way i tried to turn them on...they left me feeling like a fool (and especially if you had a line of impatient people waiting behind you)!
one turned left to right-the other one up and down...
one had a half hidden knob that you had to pull out, that some very patient lady pointed out (how was i to know?)
and if that was not enough-the touch/motion sensitive ones drove me MAD!!
each one had a different sensor and you felt like an idiot moving your hand all over the tap trying to find the hidden magic place...
the only solution is that i make sure that i wait behind someone heading for the basin and watch them carefully (ignoring her suspicious glances)
these are just a few...will write some more as and when they crop up!
