5 things that annoy Los Angeles: the opinion of a Russian-speaking immigrant
“The main merit of the United States can be formulated as follows: everything is for people. But some typically American aspects of life annoy me a lot, ”the author writes. blog "Queen in the USA" on "Yandex.Zen".
Further - from the first person.
1. Underdeveloped public transport and an abundance of cars
The life of a pedestrian is hard and unsightly. The metro covers the districts of the district very selectively, the intervals between trains are huge, and the buses simply have a weak route network. And the prices are not cheap. Dubious pleasure.
The vegetation here is more diverse than in Russia, but much less abundant. Apparently, this makes the Americans call any place meter by meter with three trees and a baseball court parks. The real - spacious, densely planted parks in the district can be counted on the fingers, and the entrance there, as a rule, is paid.
All of Los Angeles - squat hangar-type buildings plus housing estates that look like low-rise hostels. And only the private sector in wealthy areas can boast of the sophistication of buildings. But they are hidden from the eyes of the inhabitants by fences and bushes.

4. Measures of calculation
It feels like once the Americans decided: let's do everything like in Europe, just the opposite. Meters and kilometers, grams and kilograms, liters, Celsius, a button to drain the water in the toilet, old and new-style latches on the windows, 24-hour time format, sockets for plugs with round pins and standard 220 Volts - roll it all into the Old World.
The shower in all the houses is screwed to the wall. It is necessary to wriggle with a snake so that you will be poured with water in all the right places. Washing the bathtub itself when water pours from the wall at one point is another task. In addition, it is often impossible to change the water pressure. The mixer only works to change the degree. And if you want hot water in a thin stream, then pour from the kettle.
