There are many benefits to being in the internationalization (I18n) business. There are the opportunities to travel, make many friends around the world, and learn about different cultures. Of course, sometimes the learning comes the hard way. I thought I would collect here some of my favorite and worst experiences for my own amusement, your amusement, and occasionally because it might also be educational. Let me know which ones you like and don't like, and certainly share your own experiences.
