Some surprising things about visiting the US:

1. Seriffed fonts are much more popular than I’m used to; here in Portland it’s letterpress this and letterpress that.

2. The difference between A4 and ‘letter’ sized paper is one of the most subtle, and jarring, translations.

3. You can allay homesickness with all the American TV that’s on – just like at home (not being facetious; it’s true).
