comment Why is it difficult/how to make it easier for Americans to understand Australian accents?
@DavidRicherby I didn't know that. I would expect with the large indian community, there should at least be some exposure. Anyway my reference to bollywood was on a global scale. A better reference might be that top gear and the like do has exposure in the US as well.

I am not convinced it has to do with "proliferation of American cinema". If that is the case many should be able understand indian english due to Bollywood. I believe it has more to do with the richness of the vocabulary of a person. The more (multilingual/dialectal) words a person know, the better he is in understanding foreign or other dialectal conversations.

comment In which church do the French royalists meet?
That was the church I was looking for. It is just fascinating that these groups exist. Recently I met a orangist in Belgium, which is also an active group of Belgians loyal to the Dutch royals.

comment Can I own a French registered car as a non-resident?
@AdityaSomani Busses are an option in populated areas. The beauty of that area is that there are large non-populated places

comment Lost passport with Schengen visa but want to continue traveling
Not at the border but passport checks do exist. Sometimes as close as 100 meter from the border. Chances are slim that you will actually be checked, but the chances exist

comment How to dispose a broken suitcase at an airport?
There was no competition? That is really a weak excuse, because probably a large part of his suitcases are sold to replace faulty ones.

I would hand the broken suitcase to the shopkeeper selling new suitcases. Surely, he has dealt with it before..
