Soft Toilet Paper and Cargo Shorts

We're back in America, and the culture shock is setting in. We had a quintessentially American experience today when we walked into the restaurant chain Panera. We were awe-struck by what a difference a day makes. Yesterday, we were in Russia struggling with every little thing. Today at Panera, we understood the menu and could eavesdrop on the conversations at adjoining tables! Even more importantly, we looked like everyone around us: with my cargo shorts and flip-flops, I actually fit in rather than stuck out like a sore thumb!

Also, we noticed that even American toilet paper is softer than what we had in Russia!
