Now that we are counting down the days until we leave, I am getting more and more excited to board our plane and take off! I am sure must everyone feels the same way but I am nervous and think about so many different things about the trip. Things such as what do I need to take, what is the weather going to be like, how are the people in London going to treat me, etc. I think I am most concerned about is how am I going to interact with people in England and how they are going to treat me. That is why I decided to blog about stereotypes in regards to global issues. I found a website that shared the top five stereotypes of Americans when traveling abroad. They include the following: They're fat, rude, have a sense of superiority, stupid and they are suckers. I really don’t like the fact that most people in London are going to have these thoughts about us. I am especially worried about us being "suckers." Hopefully I can learn the currency and get familiar with the money so I can avoid being a "sucker" if it would happen to me. After talking with Constable Richard Watson on Tuesday, I found it helpful that he supplied us with the safety precaution pamphlet. I think it's important to follow these guidelines so none of us fall victim to any crimes because we’re are "stupid" and "suckers."
