The kitchen sink only has a cold water tap - no hot water! I find it really strange and am always boiling water to do the dishes.
I have pots and pans of water boiling at any one time on the stove - they don't use electric kettles here either!! We will have to bring one back from the UK or US our next trip.
It's also not common to have toasters - we haven't been able to find one in the shops we've been to yet but will keep looking.
