Something is rotten in the state of Denmark

... and it's the produce.  On multiple occasions we bought fruit or vegetables that went bad quickly, such as carrots browning and tasting bad after a day in our refrigerator.  Some of the food seems fine, but it's hard to predict which ones, and we've had the problem at multiple stores.  Maybe Danes are accustomed, like many Europeans, to go grocery shopping frequently, eating whatever they buy within a day or so.

Here's another difference we noticed.  Cat had to visit a doctor for what turned out to be a subcutaneous infection that required antibiotics.  Cat was trying to learn more and, midway through the examination, the doctor asked, "Do all Americans ask so many questions?"
