When I first arrived here, it took me some time to get used to the small differences I observed during every day life…

For example – on trams you are expected to ‘punch’ your own ticket in a little machine. Ticket inspectors will randomly hop on board and ask to see a few peoples’ tickets (but this happens very infrequently, I have noticed!)

Another small thing is that you cannot take a bag of shopping from one shop into another shop. You have to put it inside a locker at one end of the shop before you can actually do your shopping. A good way to deter thieves, yes, but a little inconvenient sometimes when there are only so many lockers available…
