Lausanne has a cinema where they show select films by Swiss directors in a small theatre that replicates an era when talkies were first a big deal. I felt so glamorous, with all my fabulous friends, going to the cinema in a big fancy European building. It was indeed a good evening.
However, the big culture shock of the evening was when I looked down at my place and saw two forks and two knives. Why did I need more than one of each? As one of my European friends kindly pointed out that I use the ones on the outside first–I didn’t realize I looked so confused.
