Go here and learn about other cultures so you can insult them.

I know a bit about European culture since I found knights and vikings fascinating when I was younger

I am a huge fan of Mexico. I urge kids in the USA to visit the REAL Mexico for extended time and not fall for all the borderline racist propaganda the networks portray.

I disagree. I used to live in Mexico when I was a younger. It was hot as f*ck down there, and I've seen things that my fellow Americans wouldn't believe....especially in regards to the insects and critters that live there.

I've already been living with two cultures since I was raised in two different countries. Apart from that I've learnt a little from friends and people I have met including a few visits to a few countries I wasn't familiar with.

I love learning about different cultures. I'm multicultural myself, so since young, I've been looking things up and studying more about different cultures and countries. People usually go to me when they're stumped and talking to someone from a different country. I'm not a translator or anything, but I can pretty much understand what people are trying to say through their accents, and I usually try to accommodate them with their way of business etiquette to make them feel comfortable.

Also, traveling to different places opens up your mind so much more than when you're stagnant in one country for most of your life. It's a great experience that I would recommend to everyone, especially those who don't have any particular passion in life–you might find something you really believe in or like that you would have not even experienced in the comfort of your own environment.

Thank you for your kind words about my home country. :)
It's a wonderful place filled with history and culture,


Mexico gets a bit of a bad rep here in Canada for a sad reason. Our tourists have a tendency to die or go missing there.

My family loves the vanilla you guys make though. We ask people to grab some for us during their travels. Usually the one with the red sombrero guy on it, can't remember the name. (I think it was a red sombrero dude.) The bottles are huge, lasts forever.

Outside of your own country, do you know much about other cultures?

Do you research or actively try and broaden your horizons?

For myself, I started getting into that much more last year. I ended up joining a Japanese culture club and ended up becoming president this year. I happened to learn a lot about Japanese culture, much more than I knew before from my interactions with exchange students. This year I learned about Taiwan and a bit about Bhutan from friends, and as of late, I've been trying to learn about Korea to understand my new Korean friend better. I suppose I also know a bit about China from a longtime Chinese friend of mine too.



Nope I don't even know about my own culture nor do I care, rather I better myself because what good is broadening your horizons if the feild leading up to it is empty.
