  1. I'd say it's OK to ask about people's political opinions as long as you can listen and respond calmly if they express a point of view you don't like. Especially if you're from Europe. Some Americans wish the US were more like Europe, and some Americans think Europeans are arrogant and weird and will get really upset hearing that the US is "doing it wrong."

  2. This was great. As a born citizen, I never considered many of these topics until I traveled outside of the U.S.
    Regarding the size of the U.S., I’d also say don’t expect to see the entire Grand Canyon in one day. The Grand Canyon is absolutely huge, and half of it is closed during the winter. There’s also no bridge to get across, so the only ways to get from one side to the other are to either hike it (takes a week) or drive around the whole canyon, which can take a couple of days.

    Regarding local food, I definitely find the local places when I travel. That’s the best. And Sonoran hot dogs are amazing. Thanks for making me hungry.
