Hi everybody, hope you all had a wonderful summer and great adventures. There is something I would like to ask you all...wherever you walk upon Mother Earth, be it in cities or nature, be it in Europe, America, Asia,.....PLEASE, be respectful [/b]with local attitudes, religions, ceremonies, food and social behaviour... REMEMBER, you do not only represent yourself in a foreign country but your origines, your country and education. We are invited guests in other peopleĀ“s places, countries and culture...try to adapt or at least, keep to yourself any commentary or joke until you are alone in your hotel room with your family or friends. HOW would you feel if foreign people laugh about your clothes, joke about your culture and make bad faces to your food?????? Thanks...as a guide I have seen much of all that :-)

Unfotunately, some people who believe in this idea, forgets them the moment they travel.

Like exotic travellers who walk half naked and showing off their fake CALVIN KLEINS through their low waisted jeans, NO THE SUMMER heat is not a justification.

I must point out that my Calvin Kleins are real........well, one of them are ("one of them are", what a strange language english is!)

I'm editing this just to say how pompous I sounded in the post. Didn't mean to though.

I was born here and I'm still having trouble with it.
