For me I have found that most of the places I have gone in Colombia have been extra friendly as far as walking into a store or treatment in a restaurant, or even a family meeting for the first time in most cases have been super friendly. Manizales was rude for me, however the other cities make up for it.
The DR has been very friendly for me in many ways. People are inviting and just friendly period in my many experiences. I have had taxi drivers invite me to their homes to meet their families which doesn’t happen too often in other places.
Contrary to popular belief, I feel that many places in the United States are friendly. I even think that New York is a friendly place, they may not be as open to start a conversation which to me is better, however they are typically not rude. Then you have all the southern places that are known for the southern hospitality.
Speaking of southern hospitality, Morocco is known world wide for their hospitality traits, hospitality schools and even when they come to the U.S. is it usually on a hospitality type visa. That has to be one of the reasons why the place is super friendly.
Everyone will probably think that is easy listing France as the rudest, however I have to say that my time in Madrid had to be one of the rudest I have encountered. According to this article at Huffington Post they also have France listed first and Spain listed somewhere around sixth.
Go online and search for a Russian wife, no need to say more. Those that do get married are the exception and if they make it through the first green card, I am surprised. Very rude country with rude people.
Should be number 1 in the rude department.
Everyone knows that France is a rude place to go and it’s true, however for me, it’s not the rudest.
Check out the Huffington article and let me know if you have any other experiences or ideas about this. I agree with article just in a different order.
