things to expect, part 2

I know I’ve already done part 1, but I decided to come up with new lists and group them into categories. Some may be repeated!


  1. Expect  to see a gas stove. Which means you have to turn on a switch and light a match to get it going  (I had to quickly get over my fear of matches, haha).
  2. Expect to see a jar(s) of dulce de leche in the fridge. Note: You probably won’t be able to help yourself as you sneak a spoonful of dulce from the jar 😛
  3. Expect to be able to drink from the tap (refills, yay).
  4. Expect to see fernet, coke, and water (congas and cingas) in the fridge.
  5. Expect juice to be concocted from a mix.
  6. Expect milk to be in a plastic bag.
  7. Expect food (i.e. leftovers) to have no covering, both in and out of the fridge.
  8. Expect coffee to be from instant coffee mixes.
  9. Expect no spicy food (since smoking affects taste buds, it seems that the food considered spicy here is significantly more bland than what I’m used to).
  10. Expect to see lots of desserts (indulgences everywhere)!


  1. Expect to see a bidet.
  2. Expect the toilet to hum for a few moments after flushing.
