    I just came back from a 2 weeks trip over there and I must say I'm very well impresed and thankful. Most people were warm and friendly. I travelled with my 7 month old baby and they were specially nice to him.

    It's not the 1st time I go there and it's not that I'm surprised, they've been nice every time... just this time it was even nicer!

    That's all I wanted to say... cheers.

    Glad to hear it.

    Where did you travel, and where are you from?

    Oh glad you liked it! I live in a tourist town, population multiplied by 5 in the summer, and I've been told we aren't so friendly. :p

    Well, I'm sure there are exceptions, as allways... well almost always.

    Quahog? Where everybody hates New Yorkers?

    Any experience I've had with Americans has been nothing but friendly. Granted, I haven't dealt with any American doctors, lawyers, security guards, policemen, ambulance drivers, rednecks, cowboys, hobos, businessmen, stock brokers, garbage men, gangsters, actors, actresses, politicians, soldiers or pilots...but...going by their Canadian counterparts, they'll all say "screw you" with a smile, so it's all good really :thumbup:

    That...and I dated an American for a year, so it's kind of hard to *not* like them ;)

    I've found most ambulance drivers, hobos, garbage men, soldiers and pilots to be very friendly.

    Yeah, I just saw you were from Houston... too cool. I live in Spring.

    I recently took a trip to Chicago where I found the people to be amazingly nice.

    I was expecting more of a New York style attitude, but I couldn't have been
    farther off. I was very grateful for the warmth and generosity they showed.
