We live to work
Contrags for starting a good ared to many others, Americans do travel a 's almost a graducation requirement for Calif. college students to go are lucky that we can think about travel. Majority of people on earth are happy to have foods and answer your questons, I offer the following:
(1) US coastal cities are all pretty international, people may feel they already have the world right in front of them. For example, I did not think I need to fly 14 hrs to see what Hong Kong looks like when we have so many Chinese neighborhooods here.I was wrong.
(2) In the US, our job is a huge part of our are all consumed by our , stangers want to find out first what do you do for a living of us taking vacation when we have to , otherwise, I will lost all the accmulated vaction days from 2 years ago! But I am simply too tired to go anywhere since I have been muti-tasking 17 hours/day, 7 days/wk. We also have a very different focus on home ownership and we are all afraid of getting old alone wihout $. So buying a home and retirement planning are the focus. How many times have you heardpeople talking about they plan to travel AFTER they are retired ?
(3)Unlike Europen countries, US is not surrended by numerous languages and cultures. We have relatively little conflicts with Canada & immigrants want to be Americanized ASAP. Our introdctions to foreigners/ others mostly come from Hollywood. Americans want things quick, new and fast. You cannot appreicate a different country/culture this way. Our curosity, knowledge and respect for others is generally asktwo 16 yrs old:one American, one Europen to give you their perspectives of a major Asia issue, you will be surprised (to put it mildly.)
Last, I wonder if the lack of a long and well established culture base for most US born Americans (how many 3rd generation here can still speak their grand parents' native languages?)and the rich and huge nature resources we have in this land may have caused the lack of interest -- we are doing just fine without having to know "them," so why bother? Hence, our baseball is called world serise. People from middle of America want to visit California, not necessary to Mexico.
But looking at the responses to this thread, the is half full.
