Can't get there from here

When folks visit me in Switzerland, they will say something about the States, but refer to it as "here". I do it when I'm in the States too. I'll say "Here we have..." or something similar. I was just in Berlin with my brother. He doesn't live there. I don't live there. During our week there, when referring to our perspective homes neither of us said "here". It doesn't sound like a big thing, but it struck me as odd.
