I really loved people. I love to know their cultures. I want to go to their place and country. I want to know the way of their living so that when I have an opportunity to meet them, I will not be awkward on dealing and mingling with them because I know some of there culture already. Even though we are different because of the diversity of our culture yet we are all humans.We are the same in our own physique and features. We all have the same parts in our body anatomically. I really believed in universality despite diversity of our cultures and what we believed. My beloved mylotters, I know all of us here came from different countries. I came from the Philippines. Filipinos are known to be very hospitable. The country has a lot of beautiful sceneries which attracts many tourists. Filipinos are very respectful. Children are taught to respect the person which is older than them. I can't enumerate that all, but somehow soon, I can share to you guys the beauty of the Philippines. How about you? from what country you are? Would you like to share your cultures and the beauty of your country? If you are from the Philippines like me, you can add some cultures and beautiful places from our country which are not stated above. Thank you guys!!

I live in Scotland, it is very cold here but generally most of the people are warm, friendly and show hospitality to strangers (except if you upset them). There are some problems with bad diet/obesity and people drinking too much and fighting with bladed weapons (this is leftover from the days when we were a Viking sea kingdom and is very ingrained in the culture here, particularly in the central region), also some problems with sectarian violence (catholics fight protestants) but mostly things are ok and the scenery is beautiful, with many ruined castles in the landscape......

Indeed that Scots are friendly, I just came out of the train station in Edinburgh, very near the Scott Monument. I was holding a map and locating my location and my itinerary, then suddenly a pretty lady was passing buy and stopped and offered help. She gave me the direction going to the Edinburgh Castle. I also worked with Scotts in my previous employment and they are indeed friendly and polite people. On top of that, I love Edinburgh, a lovely city indeed.

Your topic is very broad, you could have streamlined it to a particular topic...like for example, respect to the elderly.....hospitality or friendliness of the people....table manners.... However, let me share you one of my experiences while traveling (we both came from the same country so no need to elaborate on the Filipino culture) I was in Blackforest in Germany and staying with my German friends.....Blackforest is in the southwest of Germany bordering Alsace France. When eating in restaurants, my German friend advised me to clear my food and not to leave anything on the plate (OMG, the portions are too much for Asians like us). They told me that it is rude to leave some food on the plate as it would mean that the food is not good. Crossing the border to France, same German friends advised me to leave a portion of the food on the plate and not to eat everything. If I finish the food and leave the plate clean it would appear that I am famished and it is rude.

Wow. What a nice experience! It is so strange. Well, I still love people and it doesn't change whatever culture they have.

I am from America and we are known as a melting pot. People from all over the world come here to live. We have alot of programs to help new comers. We are a fast paced life and we are pretty quick to pass judgement. But we do all seem to come together in a crisis and help eachother.

Why hi there! I actually have a few Filipino friends that I hang out with and they all have a funny character to them. Are all filo people comedians? I'n from Australia, I was born here but my cultural background is actually Vietnamese. Australia is quite a lovely place, over here we have a lot of infrastructure that will amaze you. We have the kolas and kangaroos if you want to check them out. People here are very casual and open minded, we're quite friendly but when something's on our mind, we're not afraid to speak our mind. But overall, Australia is a sweet place, lots of beaches to hang out at too!

I always think the best way to learn a new culture is learning the language. China is well known for her long history, extensive land and large populations. There're 56 nations in our country who speak different languages and own different cultures. Even for the same nation, it is possible that each small town or village has their own dialects.
