In Germany Beer is classified as a food group. Almost every town brews its own signature brew. There are more than 60 different beer styles in Germany. Germans are very conscious of distinct beer styles. When they order a beer, they rarely ask for it by its brand name. Rather they order beer by its style designation, asking for a Pils, an Alt, a Kölsch, a Weissbier, a Helles or a Dunkel, for instance. I prefer Pils or Kölsch. When in Germany you have to drink beer. When you combine beer with traditional German fare I wonder why Sumo wrestlers haven't caught onto German cuisine.
If you've been in a hotel in Korea or Japan, chances are you've encountered one of these bad boys. Asia leads the world in toilet technology once you've experienced it you'll want it. Stephon Curry-NBA MVP with the Golden State Warriors said that his Japanese hight tech toilet was life changing. With heated seats, warm water washing (front and back) multiple washing options, warm air drying these make toilet paper obsolete.
Crazy Things I've seen in Asia
It never ceases to amaze me how Asians like to use English words and phrases as decorative elements. In Korea, English study is mandatory throughout elementary and high school so most people have a fundamental understanding of written English, conversational English is a different story however. I'll post more examples of this. The first thing that came to my mind when I saw this was: WTF is this supposed to mean? or I guess it's just too deep for me to comprehend.
Red Rock Resort & Casino
When most people think of Las Vegas they think about the hotels along Las Vegas Blvd-"The Strip" but next time you go visit Red Rock Canyon and stay at the Red Rock Resort. It's only 20 minutes away from the strip but it seems like a world away. In addition to a spacious casino it has a movieplex complete with an IMAX 3D theater and a 60 lane bowling center. The rooms are modern and spacious and well equipped complete with a TV in the bathtub.
Make sure to visit Red Rock Canyon when you visit Las Vegas, it's well worth the drive to see.
