PROVINCIALITY

Something I think we don't value enough in America is a sense of world-liness. Yes , I realize it's more difficult in America because in Europe and elsewhere you simply have to cross over a regional border and you're in a new land where everyone is speaking a different language, and operating their lives based on a very different set of values. That sort of experience forces you to broaden your understanding and increase your levels of acceptance. I remember my Mother, who had traveled as a child through only the center of America, (Texas to Montana, Colorado to Mississippi), and how she would react when the idea of a strange practice or an exotic food was discussed. I can remember how, right before my eyes, she would revert back to being a small town 12 year old girl and say, "Oooooooooo, That's weird !!! " Immediate distrust based on fear, for anything unfamiliar. It's human nature, you know. We all do it in one way or another. Traveling to strange and foreign lands helps to cure us of our fears. We soon find that our fears are unfounded. We soon find that throughout the world, when you get right down to it, people are just people, everywhere you go. We have so much more in common than that which differentiates us.

BEING AN AMERICAN

The more I travel, the more I experience straight out hostility towards the good ole' USA. From the guy in Mexico who said, "FUCK YOU and YOUR BUSH¨ upon hearing that I was an "American" to the drunk in the bar who spends fifteen minutes detailing why he hates "America" and they're the same things you dislike about your own country. I will admit that I salute the passion with which these people express themselves but I can't help but feel uncomfortable in these conversations. The bottom line, in my opinion, is that the world is NOT a safer place for Americans since 9/11, regardless of what your "leaders" tell you, and you can feel it out here on the streets of the world.
