I was shocked to find that in Russia, as I hear it is in many European countries, they drink everything warm! You won't find soda, beer, juice or anything drinkable besides milk in the fridge. They're aghast at the mere mention of iced anything, especially coffee or tea......they're totally screwed-up. If you order a Coke at McDonald's, they won't put ice in it unless you request it and if you should dare to ask for it......they tend to get huffy about it and everyone in the place stares at you like you're some kinda' freak. I had to put up with the attitude and dirty looks 'coz I won't put up with warm soda.
