Let's Rag on the French
I just saw a nice little article that warmed the cockles of my heart. Americans are no longer the world's worst tourists! In our place are the French. I can see all of the reasons that both Americans and French are considered bad tourists - Americans because we tend to go abroad with an air of cultural superiority (heck, we go to other parts of the US with that air of cultural superiority), and the French because of the exact same thing. Maybe we're more alike than we care to think. Also, it looks like the language limited Americans are actually better than we think at attempting to speak the local dialect. Take a look at the article, it's a nice little read.
