I usually am interested in seeing the differences between a country and what I used to seeing in the U.S. and Latin America (I can say Latin America now too, right?). In Ukraine I have seen a few interesting differences.
Toilet Paper: More than half of the toilet paper I have seen and used does not come on a roll. It’s kind of awkward to use.
Graffitti: I’m in the downtown area which is very well kept so I have not seen much. But while in Colombia I usually saw graffitti saying “Go Home Yankees” or “Destroy the FARC”. In Ukraine Skinheads are a pretty big deal I guess?
Police: The car is tiny and they look straight out of the 80’s.
Sex Tourism: Apparently its existed for quite some time if they are able to produce books like those.
McDonalds: At first I noticed cheaper prices but when my Big Mac arrived it was also noticeably smaller than in the U.S. or Argentina.
Advertisements: There is nothing strange about this but it looks so cool written in Cryllic.
I try to take pictures of all of the interesting things I see and will continue to do some. I’m curious to hear about the quirks from countries you guys have been. Please do share.
