You can travel to foreign countries and figure things out. Sure everything is different, but you can discover the similarities that allow you to get by. For example, I browsed a grocery store in Norway where everything was different…but the same. You need to clarify some things – for example, I really like milk so I always motion that I am going to drink the milk I am buying to make sure it’s not creamer (because I have made the mistake before). While it might be difficult for someone following certain dietary restrictions, the average person can get by pretty well. And why doesn’t the US have all those cool Heinz condiments? As for the spreadable caviar – you either love it or hate it. Here are some pictures from a Scandinavian grocery store….
So there you have it. Now come see the world and don’t sweat the small stuff! 🙂
