I'm not the one who posted that, but I'll answer. I live in a large city in the US. Sure, we have food carts in pods all over the city, but what we don't have are several whole bustling, crowded streets that are alive with many different street food vendors, especially at night. Not all countries have them but for sure most Asian countries do and many other places that I know of (Mexico, Costa Rica). And there may be places right here in the states (NYC, Miami, LA) that have them but they aren't as common in other cities.

OK, thanks for the clarification. I see what you mean.

NYC has them during the day, some at night near transportation facilities and entertainment venues.

Things you see traveling you wish they had in your country.

  • Better internet services
  • Good original specialty food restaurants
  • Seemed to be less crime in other countries

People who train their dogs better. In much of Europe, you’ll never have a dog lunge or snap at you like you do so often in the States. The dogs are both well-behaved and have the body language that says they are very happy pups who love going everywhere with their people.

A UK-style right to roam responsibly across private land. This is in contrast to some messy beach access rights debates in Florida right now

I've only been to the one in Philadelphia. It was pretty much like the one I went to in Germany, but that one had a carnival ride.

Locals can refill the card online from their bank account; tourists can do it at a number of convenient offices. It makes getting around really simple and easy! I wish we had something like that.
NYC Metro Card can be used on subways and buses. It is refillable with credit cards/debit cards too.

I still miss the old tokens.

It's because bigger gaps mean cheaper to make and easier to install.

It's the GMO issue. Europeans don't allow GMO and the USA is flooded with them

Must be fun to see them during daylight in their natural environment.
