americans are fatter and have their teeth straightened and smile a lot and are very polite?
(i spent nearly a week in america, so must be some kind of an expert after that!)
If you ever visit Charleston, South Carolina, your judgment regarding the latter two traits will indeed be confirmed. A bit of bragging for the Holy City as we call her):
- Most mannerly city for 11 straight years
- In 2011, Travel and Leisure Magazine named Charleston “America’s Sexiest City”, as well as “America’s Most Friendly.” Subsequently, Southern Living Magazine named Charleston “the most polite and hospitable city in America.”
- Conde Nast Traveler survey named her as the top tourist destination in the US (for many years) and the top tourist destination in the world (2012).
Charleston cuisine has been on the vanguard of the New Southern Cuisine, which has attracted attention in world culinary circles.
I am not at all suggesting that Charleston is superior to any other city; rather I am suggesting that you will not be disappointed should you decide to visit.
