When I lived in a foreign country for a few years, I saw things that you would never see in my home country.
There were things that they had that we would have never even thought about where I grew up.
However, even things that I knew about looked different where I lived in a foreign country. For instance, the foreign country had air conditioners that were completely different from the air conditioners that we had where I was born and raised. Where I am from, there were primarily two types of air conditioners in any building or house. You typically either had a central air conditioner or a window air conditioner. Besides those two types of air conditioners, there really isn’t any type of variety. If you had a lot of money or owned a business, you probably had a nice central air conditioner to cool the entire building down. If your budget wasn’t very large or you did not own your own house, you had a window air conditioner. Every once in a while, you might see a different type of air conditioner, but it was rare. However, while I was living in a foreign country, I saw an air conditioner that was different than one that I had ever seen. This air conditioner sat in the corner of the room, and the air conditioner looked like a larger rectangle. The air conditioner was way taller than I am, and I didn’t see any type of drain on the air conditioner. I have literally never seen an air conditioner like that before, and it was so strange. Obviously, I have heard of air conditioners, but even the air conditioners in that country were different than those that I have seen.
