Hey, I am living in Germany since 2014. I am an Indian. One habit that i have picked up in Germany is to use dim lights. I found it weird when I came here as a student. I was used to bright white lights when I was at home. Now I got used to the dim lights. Nowadays I just use a small table lamp in my apartment and never turn on the bright lamp.
