I haven't experienced that. Granted I haven't been to Pakistan or anything. The Greeks seemed to be genuinely puzzled about George Bush, but I never felt any animosity at all.

If I may paint with a broad brush, the Germans seem to be the rudest when it comes to Americans, but only outside Germany. And I'd say that's true general sense as well. In you are in the host country, people tend to be nice.


I second that. I haven't seen/experienced any anti-American sentiment anywhere I've been. In general I've found that people either don't care or are solicitous (sp?) because they want the tourist business. I am always amused when people assume I'm NOT American though (this has happened in Paris, Fiji and Argentina).
