American Beauty

Earlier this week was a post asking what quirks are uniquely American.

I’m curious to see what those of you from other countries or those you who’ve travelled think. The thing that most jumps out at me when I come back to this country from overseas is the willingness of perfect strangers to strike up conversations with me, sometimes about fairly personal stuff likes jobs, kids, religion, etc. I always know I’m back in the USA when some random person starts telling me their life story.

    I have been to Eastern Europe and Turkey a few times in the past couple of years visiting friends (Been to Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Lithuania, and Poland). From what I notice about people there is that they usually keep to themselves, and are more polite and courteous when they do talk to a stranger. Then again that might just my experience.
