I just got back from Ireland. It was an amazing experience! I loved the people and the country. My mother’s family was from Ireland and our daughter is marrying a boy from County Cork. I went to a well-known furniture store there and it was fascinating! We have many of the same lines, though there are fascinating differences.
But, the similarities struck me much more than the differences. Of course people there are the same as us. And our commonalities are evidenced in our retail stores. Sure, there are differences. Different sizes, different brands, small cultural things will throw you for a bit.
But most importantly — people are people. All over the world!
