General: Is diferent weird?

If you are for example in Europe and a Japanese person asks you what is the name of a certain block what do you do?
The only thing i can come up with is: blocks don't have names, streets have names, blocks are just the unnamed spaces between the streets.
So the person goes away not feeling completely satisfied.
Now you go to Japan, and when you ask the name of a street you get an answer like this: streets don't have names, blocks have names, streets are just the unnamed spaces between the blocks.

That's right, sometimes you literally have to go to the other side of the world to realize your assumptions, it's like the old Indian saying:
Whatever you say about India, the opposite may also be true.

In sum, just because you have a great idea doesn't mean the opposite is not true.
