More about cultural differences

Even in Latvia a Romance language conference is a good showcase of the Mediterranean culture:) Yesterday I came back from lunch just in time, only to find the room empty. About 4 persons came in 20 minutes, so I left in order to not miss my work.
Today the after-lunch part is exactly the same: four guys back on time. At +10 minutes I went down to grab some coffee — and found Spaniards, French and Italians having a casual sobremesa in the faculty café:)
P.S. It’s absolutely amazing how everybody speaks whatever language they fancy, and everyone understands. Someone makes their point in French, receives an answer in Italian, responds in Italian, and the next speaker comes in with Spanish. Wow <3
