10 funny laws from abroad

Things that you may not think twice about doing at home might not be considered impolite, or even illegal in other countries. Reading a few strange laws from my own country got me curious, so I did some research for you. Some of the regulations I found are stupid: in Florida, it is illegal to fart in a public place after 6 P.M. on Thursdays. Some of them are downright scary: China’s one child policy. But all were created at some point for some purpose.

I’ve searched through a plethora of laws and rules to compile this list of my personal favorites for you. Without getting too political, my qualifications for being mentioned here are: relevance (places that Travelettes like you and me travel to), legitimacy (a lot of the laws I found on shock sites aren’t even in effect anymore), and of course, entertainment value (smiling is fun).

Enjoy, and consider yourself warned!
