I listen to the BBC World News some mornings at work. I loved it when they were covering the election and all the numerous small town campaign stops. American reporters would be saying things like, “Podonk, Indiana again today eating greasy food.” The British reporters would start out with a tone bordering on reverence, “We are in a small town in the American state of Indiana at an establishment called Norma’s Diner.”
I love hearing people from other countries’ take on everyday things in America. It makes you look at them with new eyes. Here is a great write up of a British couple’s road trip to Arizona. Naive Brits Guide to an American RoadTrip. Very funny.
