I didn't find any swaps like this after quick search, but in case somebody already had this idea before, I apologize for unintentional copying!

Have you ever wondered just how different things are somewhere else?

The things you might not find out with google?

The things they don't (always) tell tourists about...

Well, now is your chance to find out! In this letter swap you have one partner, from another country, and you will write them a letter where you reply for following questions:

  1. What is the nickname for McDonald's in your country (or how people usually call it)?

  2. What character all the kids are scared of even though the said character is from something made for kids (TV-program, movie, book etc.)?

  3. What is the most popular dog breed in your country?

  4. If you see a door with a heart on it (either cut, painted or a sign) will you without question to know to what room that door leads? Also, is this question confusing you a lot?

  5. Is there anything special that happens in your country in October?

  6. If your country has royal family, who is the most popular member of the royalty? Or if your country do not have a royal family, is there any politician that everybody just kind of agree is okay-ish on some level?

BONUS QUESTION: If you have ever lived in another country, what was the weirdest cultural shock you got?

You may write your letter by hand or type it. Use pretty stationery or normal office paper. That doesn't matter so long you answer the questions. If there are questions that do not ably on your country, you may of course skip those BUT for every skipped question you will have to share one Very Secret Fact Only Locals Know. You do not need to send reply for your partner, but of course if you both want you can continue sharing the inside information and make it pen paling.

Because we are supposed to share our secret knowledge, ONLY ONE PARTICIPANT PER COUNTRY allowed! However because there are people like me who are born and raised in one country and live now in another, you may also present country other than where you live in IF you have lived in the said country and know enough of / follow things going on there to reply for the questions (and the country hasn't been already taken, of course). We want the inside information so tell about the country you count as a local in!

Write down in comments which country you are from / or which you are going to write about.

Anybody with at least 10 completed and rated swaps are welcome to join in. No recent or large amount of unexplained 1s or 3s. I will check all the profiles.
