How do folks who visit the US talk about the US when they go back?
 
Often times I'll overhear conversations about visits to various countries... you have to go to Ireland,Spain,England,Germany,Africa,Japan,China,B razil etc... because they have the best noodles, beer, race horses, etc... in the world... blah, blah, blah... and over there they do this and that and it's so awesome and you have to visit monument X and the grand building!

I've never heard anyone say that they'd like to stay and live in these countries.

What do the locals in these countries say about their visit to America?

When you're in the US you have to go to Wisconsin, California, Florida, etc... because they have the best noodles, beer and races horses etc... in the world... blah, blah, blah... and over there they do this and that and it's so awesome... and you have to visit monument X and the grand building!

Some may say I'd like to stay here and bring my culture from "over there".

How do folks who visit the US talk about the US when they go back?

I would imagine that they talk about how we all look the same. Just my theory.

The rest of the world doesn't like us, they just send their kids here to get the best college education money can buy.

Oh, and the Paulding Lights...

Having just got back from the UK 2 weeks ago, and having attended a beer fest there... And also because I'm Canadian (yet live in the US)...:

1) Usually the latest big thing in the news is what's on people's mind. The recent shooting and ensuing gun control brouhaha in the US was often mentioned, with Brits generally taking the position that there are too many guns in the US. [No intention to open a can of worms here]

2) Beer wise... Brits are starting to see that there IS good beer in the US. In fact, there were a few offerings at the beer fest that were American-based (a couple of APA's and IPA's).

When foreigners visit here, all you can really do is try to set a good example, and treat them as a good host would.

Not much you can do about the other A$$h@les that are rude n' crude when company comes to town.

Really, really? have you looked at where the US is in the world education?

Im a Brit, live in US. America is like everywhere else, there are nice people and not so nice. Different cultures which can affect you, but hey! people are people.
Use the brew Luke!!!

They talk about how FAT we are.

This months' National Geographic had a lovely little chart describing that if the population of the rest of the world was as fat as the American average, it would equal the collective weight of 1 BILLION more people.

Gross.
