Once upon a time I visited the University of Antwerp. Here’s a picture from while I was on the move:
If I hadn’t told you the school’s location, you might not have identified its location. Actually, it looks like a lot of American campuses, except they obviously don’t spend exorbitant sums on landscaping.
When you’re traveling, don’t just pass through the things that look like the same old boring thing from home. You can learn a lot by noticing the similarities in different countries.
By the same token, you can also learn from the differences in things that look the same. For example, McDonald’s sells beer in Germany.
