The main problem with Europe is that everyone speaks a different language, this makes it very hard to communicate and creates divisions between people.
That along with different cultures and customs and manners contribute to their seeming indifference or unfriendliness. Once we learn to communicate, they are no different than us.
During my visit to the Canary Islands,I had the opportunity to dine at El Diablo, a restaurant located atop an active volcano. While enjoying this meal, I had the opportunity to converse with many Danes, who own a large share of the property on the island.
The Danes are intrigued by our huge cities, tall buildings and the vastness of our country. It is like Shangrila to them, they don’t understand how we Americans can find anything interesting in Europe, they feel we have it all. Everything of importance to them is in America. I have encountered this sentiment many times during my travels to different areas of the world.
To me, the thing that is interesting about Europe is the smallness of everything, how close everything is, you don’t have to drive 4 hours to get somewhere. The buildings and towns are smaller and changes in scenery are but 10 minutes away, instead of hours.
Ever since I’ve been knee-high to a grasshopper I’ve heard about how the rest of the world, especially Europe, hates us, this simply isn’t true!
Most Europeans don’t hate us, contrary to popular belief, it is only the far left that doesn’t like us, most Europeans, as well as the rest of the world like and respect us for the good things we have done.
