I met a lower level Canadian diplomat who had several missions to China, and he travelled first class everywhere... even within China. On the plane (in first class) they were hocking loogies on the floor. They allowed smoking on the planes, and everyone just threw the still-smouldering butts on the floor when they were done. The worst part was the body odor. He said "apparently in China, even if you're rich and some high powered executive, you don't have time to shower for weeks on end." Oh and it's culturally acceptable to just belch and fart all you like.

So there he was: riding in first class surrounded by truly rancid smelling people dressed in Armani suits, who were belching and farting constantly and periodically expelling phlegm on the carpeted airplane floor.

He dared not even imagine what it was like in coach.

He wasn't a germophobe before his trips to China, but he became one after. Hand sanitizer wherever he goes... and he refuses to go back to China.

When visiting the USA:

- Don't call anyone "boy".
- Get inside or stay in a group when you're out after dark.
- Plan to add 20% to just about every bill. Don't argue about it, or fret that it's not how you do it at home. You spent who knows how much to fly here, to see a new country, and you're going to drop a thou or two at the casino anyway, so just man up and accept it.
- There's NO sex in the champagne room.

When visiting Canada:

- When people say, "I'm sorry" it can mean "I apologize", "That's too bad" or "You bumped into me, you asshat".
- Don't be surprised if the town you're in shuts down after 9pm.
- To avoid a strongly-worded letter, please limit your violent or racist outbursts to a maximum of three per visit.
- If anyone offers you a "walnut log", don't worry! It's a kind of doughnut.

Give peasants a bunch of money and see how the act as tourists. Kids there walk around with flaps on the back of their pants, no underwear, then release the flap, squat and poop wherever they may be. Tons of pictures of this on the internet....I've heard.

They aren't the world's worst tourists for nothing.
