I don't really know people from different nations, except for Indians (Sikhs). Once you get to know them they are a very warm people. I've even been invited to Sikh festivals such as The Festival of Light - I can only describe it as been like New Year in the UK... even though me and my sister were the only whites there we were made to feel welcome and had great time. Obviously Indian food is the muts nuts too, infact it's become so popular that Indian foods competes against fish and chips as the nations signature meal.
One thing the gets me is the way other nations perceive Britain, they don't appreciate or even understand the diversity in this small piece of land. I can actually tell if someone is from Sunderland (6 miles away) or Peterlee (7 miles away) just from their accents. I also think some people (Jonny Foreigners) think we are all stiff upper lip and no sense of humour, rather than the hard partying nation that we are.
