The weather today is glorious. The forecast predicts that it won't hold, but I will enjoy it as long as it lasts. It's about 10-15 degrees cooler here than at home.
Another difference is the electric kettle for heating water for tea or coffee.
Our cabbie explained the difference between "subway" and "underground" on the ride from the airport last night. The underground is the subway and the subway is a pedestrian underpass on busy roads.
The fact that it rarely gets hot here means that there is a dearth of air conditioning. Also there aren't screens on any of the windows. That takes a bit of getting used to. Luckily this place isn't plagued with mosquitos.
