Why did the balconies in Russia surprise the American?

Julia works in an international children's camp. Different groups of children come to them, mainly from English-speaking countries. She also carries children abroad. She is interested in communicating with foreigners, and they are interested in communicating with her. Having been in many countries, she began to lead the author's blog "Let's face it». In one of her stories, she decided to tell why Americans were surprised by the balconies in Russia.

18-year-old Kyle came to us as an accompanying group of children from America. He could no longer be a child in our camp, but he participated in all activities almost as much as the children did. He also had more free time, which Kyle did not waste.

So, in the middle of the shift, Russian leaders took Kyle to Moscow, and he not only walked in Moscow parks, but also visited the Russians. Kyle was pleased and a little surprised. The young man especially paid attention to one detail. And when he saw it for the first time, he was surprised that such a thing could be.

These are balconies. In his native California, the balconies are not glazed. This is not necessary. Winters are not so cold. In addition, a balcony is like another room in which you can drink tea or play, as well as enjoy the surrounding beauty. Kyle lives in a low-rise building, and all the balconies there are unglazed. They can be big, they can be small. However, they decided to grow beautiful flowers, and also put a table and chairs there. Everything.

The American understands that in Russia it is impossible to leave a balcony without glass. It is still a cold country. He was surprised not by the presence of double-glazed windows, but for what Russians use balconies. What are they filled up with? Why do Russians dry their laundry in this place? Why does the Russian guy Zhenya have wheels on the balcony? And did girl Katya have a wardrobe and some bags on the balcony?

Scaredly, Kyle asked: aren't Russians fined for this? Both Zhenya and Katya laughed in response. What to fine for? As they say, my apartment, what I want, I do.

Kyle said that in America you can't do that. It turns out that you must keep your balcony in order so that it pleases the aesthetic eyes of your neighbors. That is, the laundry you dry there spoils the whole look. And if you put a closet there, then this is generally a jurisdictional matter. Everything should be beautiful. And if this is not the case with you, then rest assured that they will snitch on you for violating harmony and beauty.

Kyle noticed that balconies in America look much tidier and it is really nice to drink tea on them. But in Russian they are often small and more like a warehouse.
