Imagine you have been travelling overseas for a while and you wander into a local supermarket in Europe. As you shop for your dinner you encounter the foreign food aisle in addition to Asian or Latino foods, there is a section for American foods! This is what you see.
How sad. This is our gift to other cultures. That and
There may be some Americans who thing this is great…they can eat the food they are used to when they travel to Paris or Beijing. Personally, I enjoy eating authentic French or Chinese food and when I travel I want to eat food prepared well and native to that culture. I sure wish the people in those countries would not be thinking that processed food and fast food is what we eat……but maybe it is for most people. What a shameful thing we are teaching others about us.

I’m still trying to find the polite way to not look absolutely horrified when someone invites me to eat at McDonalds because they think it is my native food.

Just turn it around on them and ask them for a better place they like…..if the friendship is worth it, you can always prepare them an American meal!
