Basically America, at least the parts I’m familiar with (neither a pro nor a con)
Lots of unnecessary laws, especially when it comes to alcohol and bars. I found it odd that liquor shops had to close on a particular religious holiday (I forget which one), forcing religion on citizens. You can only buy alcohol from Bottle Shops. You must wear a helmet on a bicycle, no matter what age. Hot water cannot exceed 59 C. Etc.
They LOVE American politics. It was on the TVs at the Hostels I stayed at, taxi drivers asked me about it, etc. I don’t think I went a day without being asked about Trump. They all held very similar viewpoints about Trump which I felt was very interesting.
I really like the layout of the city. There’s the city center, and then everything built around it. Great public transit, easy to get around.
Lots and lots and lots of young people. I remember sitting in the subway one day and looking around and not seeing anyone older than 35 years old.
Lots of early 20-something travelers as they bring in millions every year on a yearly visa
Street performers have to audition to play on certain streets
Hard to find Oatmeal, instead meusli
Bogans are what American’s would call hicks or white trash
