This may sound funny that I'm picking 'light Switches' as a 'culture of the week' but it's been one that I've been WANTING to do for a while! Check out the picture above: The 'turn nob' is for the room fan (a must for ALL rooms to keep it cool and keep the mold down....) and the double switch below is the normal looking switch here in Indonesia. The think that you DON'T know it the switch is opposite/backwards then what you (from America) think is normal! HERE up is OFF and down is ON! When ever I go to use a light switch here I always have to think first.... O.K. not what I think....
Culture.... It's a funny thing!
