kulturCHOCK! is an electronic newsletter devoted to the Swede or American with one foot in the old country, one foot in the new. We help students, guest workers, and expatriate wives, husbands, and sambos understand, adjust to, and appreciate the oddities of their second home.

Our goal: to unlock the day-to-day secrets of the two countries. Not art, culture, traditions, scenery, but rather the important topics, such as: Where can you get Kalles Kaviar in California? Why is American cheese orange? Should I or should I not take off my shoes at this party? Brännboll: the Swedish sport that's like softball, but without any rules.
