The USA is officially divided into five climate zones. The fourth largest country in the world offers every type of weather. “Indian summer” is particularly worth experiencing, to name but just one seasonal highlight. From the end of September to the end of October the leaves of the trees on the east coast exude a warm red. The sky is mostly clear and the temperatures are pleasantly mild.
In Brooklyn, donkeys are not allowed to sleep in the bathtub. Anyone who drives camels on state highways has to pay a fine. In Florida it is forbidden to sing a song on a car park if you are only wearing swimming shorts. And frogs are not allowed to croak after 11 pm in Memphis. These are just a few examples of the many bizarre laws from the land of unlimited opportunities. Some of them date back years and have never been changed, but they still at least raise a chuckle nowadays.
