Apples, bananas, fruits, and oranges

In Amsterdam now and feeling a little myspace withdrawal-- that's why I'm blogging here, ha ha. Of the 3 cities I've visited, I've had hotel Internet access in just 1 city (Berlin), and even while I was there, I didn't have time to go online. (I'm in our Amsterdam office now, but the firewall blocks myspace.)

Here's a little cultural difference I noticed:

You know that American saying, "It's like apples and oranges"? Well, here's what the other cultures say:

Dutch and German: "It's like apples and pears."
Danish and British: "It's like apples and bananas."
