I’ve traveled a lot and I’m thinking that from now on to understand a culture I might just land, go to the baggage carousel, and then take off again.

Moscow: pushy, driven, impatient, ‘oh there is a foot between you and the baggage carousel, I think I’ll squeeze in there’ sort of culture. How about if we put an invisible fence two feet back from the baggage carousels that if you stepped across before your bags come along would zap you like a suburban dog? Anyone with me here?
