And the government would suppress all the discussions of it like in Vietnam era movie.

I was very young and we moved the one of the things my parents always mentioned it was whenever we needed help. Weather was navigating the interstates where to shop people would go out of their way to help us find the things that we needed or show us how to do things. And that was different from my home country with other countries can you not athlete direction. I think it's different your tourist of the people like two or not they understand situationally. But I guess maybe if you look this is not something you do. I guys I was shocked by not getting shots and a drive by. Seriously the Canadian media the way people talk made it seem like the US is full on gun toting rednecks in gangsters in your life is in danger every time you step out the door. Some of my friends drove six hours straight once through Ohio without a bathroom break because they were so scared. Well now being in California for fifteen years and it's much nicer kinder and with fewer guns and chaos than the outside media would make it seem. Orasure. I would still draft Ohio street chapped just of the Ohio lived out of out of me dangers like you got a car you do it why in my standing immigrants until America or asked what was the most pleasant surprise when he got here the most white Americans aren't actual races.

Well give it. I showers and running hot water. Was born in the Philippines showers and hot water are really common in older homes over there and not having to fill buckets with water boiling some over as a to a stove topple such a big surprise for me. Experiencing that as a twelve year old was an unforgettable experience as both people who. A live here ticket for granted sometimes you can actually get a hunch I mean it is a while ago. Yet showers are one of the best things on the planet. I was amazed by what they call small talk. I really didn't expect people to to strike up a conversation with someone they'd never met before I've heard some interesting experiences from strangers while waiting in the airport and us error guys you don't really notice how real fresh air feels like when your breathing. I not breathing and polluted Errol Leo. From may immigrants from China I will say for a moment to Mexico so people always up to Simone. The biblical via political emissions and although we do the car. They don't do that there and it was a it's just something small to be just that smell in the air dams moment the 1970s. And. Recent immigrants to America castles most pleasant surprise. How hiking biking and camping is made so easy well marked trails clearly specified difficulty levels park Rangers to help you documented rules to follow for good experience. Bike trails document along Google Maps camping equipment you can buy at Wal-Mart with Chris instructions every step of the way. And well maintained national and state parks back home there's a lot of nice places to do outdoors stuff and the most are what Americans would consider back country. Some obscure about the kind of thing and I was shocked I'll save it was to walk around residential streets alone as a woman. Thinking back to when I came what my family from Russia grocery stores. Seriously are we came from shelves were bare or best stocked with drab low quality food. When I was a little kid I loved going to the store just to see all the different crazy things they have that would never be available in our old country. Produced. Cereals. Candy you name it even though we were too bored bile those things I want as a kid just going to see it was fun enough for me. Sort of got you have to do that stuff all the time it still does it now yeah. On Torii five immigrants razzle was the most pleasant surprise when he moved to the United States a lawyer Gloria fireworks. I had moved on the fourth of July was quite young but I still remember the fireworks. Another not having hagel. When buying things not having to know who to talk to or bribe to get in the little bit of paperwork filed in a reasonable amount of time. Not having to worry about being cheap lawn every little transaction. Just having standard reliable procedures for daily tasks was wonderful. You guys might hate going to the DMV but let me tell you it could be much much worse. Then I got even better with the automation and e-commerce and not even really having to interact with people for many tests. So happy about that. Honestly public libraries I know ideas such things existed until the public library in my neighborhood went or school and invited us to get a library card. It literally changed my life. I remember how the doors open on royal guard go to uncle Teddy speak I never read a book in my life. I remember how the doors open on the only walked out of the airport. And the soda on the plane ride over was in Cannes instead of glass bottles I was also amazed by individual houses all I'd ever known at that time was large apartment. You ever seen a single story house. I'm more. Most public buildings are smoke free wheels bugler decent enough not to smoke in someone else's house or car most people don't blow smoke to children and babies that Jimmy was amazing. It's amazing to me the people want most vocal and that you. You have to are just ridiculous scare refused a mean nasty person yeah recent immigrants festival's most pleasant surprise blog coming to America was. Rise he was a social circles that existed in schools and in life. Back in Italy schools and have the nerds jocks the skeeter kids in Mosul whatever people were basically all the same a minor differences in interest but most everyone played soccer casual gamer. Hung out the towns where at night that it may sound like an exaggeration but 95% of my friends there were exactly like this. Sort of came to school here I was amazed how the jocks would hang out the gyms and play four different sports afterschool. Other skaters headed off to the park it was a different and a lot. Because while I can fit in back in Italy it was always much more introverted and interested in nerd stuff in the US I finally found people who were exactly like me. I was really unexpected and you only notice it after spending a lot of time. Excellence in America now and snow I'm originally from Jamaica where the idea of us know is practically something a make believe. Because as we get to snow was by scraping ice from our freezer. To see snow fall for the first time was a real armor my dad waking me up at 4 in the morning the look out the window at untouched snow covering them. I thought somebody sees no for the first it it was a what you don't you know every ride gathered go to the drug charge we will sit and spin with ten songs featuring the xylophone next.
