When I saw this picture in the local Blick am Abend newspaper I thought, "Oh, a graduation ceremony."
But then I read the caption and realized the Swiss saw something else: a little Las Vegas.
The beginning of this caption reads: Air Force Academy, CO--For the Americans, everything is a little Las Vegas.
I think this caption versus my original impression of the photo says a lot about the difference between Swiss and American culture.
What do you think?

Bell, a meat brand in Switzerland, has a new ad campaign advertising American style BBQ. Based on my last post, I thought their headline was actually quite appropriate: Think Big. Grill Big.
I don't think I could sum up American life much better. Could you?
