    I went there, and there was little to no hospitality towards my group.
    Probably because I was American, and they ignorantly see Americans as whatever they portray on MTV nowadays, but I don't know. I'd like to know the answer to this, too.

    Couple of people mentioned New York, specifically in comparison to Paris.

    I don't get it-- New Yorkers may not be as friendly as, say, Philadelphians, but they ain't that rude either. They're aggressive and loud, but aggressive and loud does not equal rude and snobby. Not sure where this myth of rude New Yorkers comes from-- too many movies maybe.

    A better US city for comparison's sake would be Boston, which genuinely is quite rude.

    I don't mind French people and Parisians in particular being rude. They have their whole country to live in, and I never need to go there. There are lots of other places with abundant history and culture where I can go enrich my intellectual life and enjoy the cuisine.

    true, this! haha

I can still understand it passively, better written than spoken, but I've lost about 60% of the ability I used to have to speak German, exactly because I never got the opportunity to use it, and on the rare times when I did, the Germans would all switch to English the moment I made one mistake.
    if i'm not mistaken there's a quip from mark twain about being in germany and being surprised that the germans did not understand their own language when he spoke it to them!

    My Dad told me avoided this by going to mostly Italian owned restaurants in Paris and if he had to ask for directions he would ask kids because they seemed mostly happy to practices their English.

    California is famous for wine within the US, like how Wisconsin is famous for beer within the US. I am not sure about its notoriety in other countries, though. On a cruise I went on (British) there were a few Californian wines on the list which showed up with about the same frequency as Aussie wines.
