9 Common Things In Some Countries That Are Very Rare In Others
1. “Belgium. We didn’t have a government over a year, and it went surprisingly better than when we did.”
2. United Kingdom. I don’t believe any other countries have the annual ‘chasing cheese down a hill’ competitions.
3 . In New Zealand it is normal to be barefoot in public. In the mall, the supermarket, fast food places etc. It’s even normal for kids to go to primary school barefoot. It’s recognized this is unusual and has become a point of national pride for some people. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not like everyone is doing this, but it’s a noticeable minority and would be seen on a daily basis, even in winter.
4 . A week-long nationwide water fight in Thailand.
5 . “Medical debt.” –Americans
6. Have farms larger than Connecticut (14,357km2) Australia has 4 of them. The largest is larger than Israel, 44 of them are larger than Delaware, and this is still more than three times the size of the largest Ranch in the US, the Waggoner Ranch in Texas.
7. Wales. Place names like this llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
8. Faroe Islands. More sheep than people in my country.
9. South Africa. Scheduled blackouts to reduce pressure on the electrical grid.
