I love your observations. I found the same thing to be true as a child growing up in Greece and as an adult living in Germany. I even feel that way when I cross over into Canada. It's the little differences.

And that clip is my absolute favorite scene from that movie.

Ha! I loved this. Switzerland and Luxembourg must be pretty similar! When I was pregnant I discovered Cheeseburger Royals at McDonalds and my husband referenced that Pulp Fiction scene in explaining to me that it was the same as a quarter pounder in the States (which I've never had). Been lurking on your blog for a while, I really enjoy it!

That may be the best use of a movie clip on a "mom Blog" that I have ever seen! Love it!
