2. Not it is not normal to see men dressed as women, and vice versa

3. You don't need to guess the nationality of all those around you.

4. Sunrise will indicate the start of a new day, rather than the end of the previous.

6. There'll be an endless loop of samba music in your head.

7. You'll miss all the love and fun on the streets.
