Cooking Overseas

So I’m trying to cook dinner. I set the burner knob on like 2, thinking that I’d move it up gradually, which is usually the way that I cook. Did that, but it seemed like the water was taking freaking forever to boil. Seriously, like long enough that I actually started to investigate what was going on. Turns out, that 1 is the high setting on our stove. 3 is actually the low setting. Huh??? This also holds true for the one burner we have that, for some unknown reason, goes from 1-12 instead of 1-3. Am I the only one who finds this completely puzzling?

On a reassuring note, I can now boil water.

You're so funny...I'm glad you figured out how to boil water, which of course is more than I do at home.
