... which I discovered while reading blogs.
(This is just my own perception and must not be true
or politically correct)
Most American bloggers feed birds and report them to their blogs .
In Germany only less people do that and in blogs it is rarely a topic ...
The birds in USA are nicer and more diverse than birds in Germany.
Americans don’t know insect hotels (and probably don't need).
Insect hotels are a popular environmental activity in Germany. They are self-made or bought ready-made and installed in courtyards and gardens to provide nesting areas for insects. Before the Germans have the courtyards and gardens restored and cleaned up so neatly that any loophole for insects was lost (I mean, it is an exaggeration with the German sense of order -)
Many American women are quilting.
I have previously read in books of this tradition, and now I see: it is a living tradition, I found it in many blogs.
While in Germany traditions are mostly dead and or be revived only with government support ...
There are many devout and spiritual people in the USA and the diversity of religions,
directions, and communities promotes tolerance .
In our part Gemanys there are few religious people and they are unfortunately often very dogmatic and dismissive of other views.
As a bonus now the poetic part - лирический часть -
The "New World" meets the " Occident ":
Paul Robeson sings along with the famous Russian tenor Ivan Kozlovski Semjonowych a Russian folk song .
The recording was taken in 1957 during a guest performance by Paul Robeson in the USSR (I have a time released vinyl of Paul Robeson , Soviet-made , I like it very much )
