I had froyo. Amazing! So amazing. I had the sorbet ones and I'm in love.

There are so many food places!!!!!! And they're all full at all hours!

Waiters/waitresses are so attentive. Again I can't decide if I like or dislike! Its nice but I'm feeling a bit leave me alone!

I think my accent could get me anything I wanted

I'm not even going to touch on the religion thing... but wow.

Your road layout is just crazy and makes no sense to me! And all the stop signs?!!!! You need some good old fashioned roundabouts. Seriously.

Again, everyone is so positive and friendly. We like to moan mostly. Here everything is just woooonderful! Your glasses are definitely half full.

The wildlife and the supermarkets fascinate me I saw a dead skunk! Lol.

Welcome! Where are you at now? NYC?

If you want roundabouts, come up north. I'm near Saratoga Springs, NY for work and the town I work in has about a million roundabouts. I'm honestly getting sick of driving in circles. It's very unusual for the US.

I have a feeling you're going to do great with the driving!

Are you just on vacation exploring the U.S.? So glad you've come to experience all there is here. It's nice hearing the perspective from someone from another country coming here. Sometimes we all forget to enjoy all there is here.

I'll be waiting for the next update.

Ah yes, Salt Lake is kind of a strange place! Very pretty, but definitely a different vibe than much of the country. And the way they number roads in that city is unlike anything I've seen.

LOL Dizzy. I had the same impressions when I moved here. Waiters that ask you if everything's ok... never happens in France. Heck it's a battle to get our check there!

Same with the religion thing. Definitely a different world.

The 4 ways stop signs I actually don't mind. I found that people are actually nice here and will let you go first if you were at the intersection first. I was just telling my mom that if they did that in France it would be a disaster. There are some roundabouts in some places though, at least on the East coast.

4 ways are a regional thing. WHere I used to live, if you were slowing down to stop, that signaled to other drivers approaching that since you were stopping, they didn't even need to slow down and would gun it thru the intersection. It would have been fun to be able to shoot out their tires

I love roundabouts, they've put in probably 30 or in this area in the past 2-3 years. I can't wait till they put in more.
