Chai[tea]- yes.

Coffee[coffee]- yes.

Cigarettes- yes, somewhat.

Conversation- yes.

Language- different.

Culture- different.

History- different.

Religion- way different, maybe.

We are all different.

Yet, we are all the same.

Just in different ways.

I saw the Iraqis drink chai- no cream, only sugar. After meals and always during conversations.  I liked chai, a lot.

The Polish and Ukrainians drank tea- black, no cream, sugar.  Always during conversations.

The Iraqis drank coffee- thick, Turkish style, no sugar. It was good, even with no sugar.

The Polish drank coffee- thick, with sugar.

The Ukrainians not so much with the coffee, they preferred tea.

The Iraqis smoke- like a forest fire and always offered my a smoke, despite saying ‘no’ every time.  Hospitality is a must.

The Polish and Ukrainians did not smoke as much.

When I drank chai with the Iraqis, they loved conversations and talked forever about everything.

The Polish loved conversations and talked about everything.

The Ukrainians loved conversation and talked about everything.

We are all different.

Yet, we are all the same.

Just in different ways.
