I have been in the professional services business for years and have been fortunate enough to have traveled for work and pleasure globally. I seek out and enjoy interaction with locals especially when I am in a different culture.
I have found that a smile, a willingness to try to communicate, carrying no expecations or judgements but just a genuine interest in experiencing sights, flavors, traditions, etc. of a new place can make for unexpected adventures and friendships anywhere.
At the end of the day people like to share what matters to them and the more you travel the more the way you see the world and your and your country's place in it differently.
