Went to the USA for the very first time January 15-25. Spent first couple of days in the Rocky Mountains in the snow, in Grand Lake, Colorado, with my pals from the IGeLU Steering Committee and some of the PWG Coordinators, before going to Denver for four days of meetings with ELUNA and Ex Libris.
Some observations:
– Although America seems very familiar (because of American movies, TV, books) it is also completely different from Europe
– No tourists in Grand Lake, they are a summer resort
– Lots of snow, but locals complaining about lack of snow
– Although out of season, lots of bars and restaurants open, but they close at 9 PM!
– Americans are very friendly
– Americans serve very big meals, breakfast, lunch and dinner; it is normal to take half of it home
– Haven’t seen any live moose, only a lot of other forms (labels, pillows, signs, …)
– Snowshoeing is nice
– Buffalo Bill has picked a very nice place to be buried
