The (unnecessarily) ugly American abroad
Travel. What a magical word. Distant lands, faraway places, exotic peoples, gastronomic delights. A chance to finally see, in person, the places we have visited via the glass eye on the world in our living rooms. However, as we stow away our carry-on baggage in the overhead compartments, we need to remember that we carry with us more than just physical baggage. Our perceptual and emotional baggage will colour what we see and how we will react.
