At 271 pages big, it seems to me that this topic needs to become its own folder with sub folders.  Suggestions for sub folders before I make this happen?

How about continents/large cultural areas? USA, Europe, Britain, North/South Asia, Australia & NZ & Pacific.

But the whole point of the thread to to learn about other cultures and the differences.  It just seems odd to split it like that.

Subjexts: food, vocabulary, etc would work better.
Nothing to see here.

I don't think it needs subfolders right away.


I really like the idea of an "International Understanding" (or whatever) folder but I agree that sub-folders may not be necessary yet.  If you do add folders, I wouldn't do it by country/continent but by topic (i.e., family, work, everyday life, etc.).

I agree that subfolders aren't really needed, but if it happens, do it by topics, not geography. Food, wedding customs, education and the like are what I mean.

Comparisons will be much easier.
