Oddity #1

They sweep rugs here. This method is ineffective.

It would be effective only if one swept with a vacuum. :) I remember years ago seeing folks beating their rugs and carpet outside to get the sand out. ec

Vacuuming is our mode of choice for cleaning rugs, not sweeping, I mean. And I agree, I like that people take off their shoes when they come into the house. Many Americans do this too.
