Think about this:
As of today, young Americans, Eurail Passes in hand, hopping from youth hostel to youth hostel, no longer need to stitch Canadian flags to their backpacks.
When I was in the UK pre-Clinton it went “So where are you from” me: “California”. Actually, worked well in Paris too in ’05 where the sales gal replied “Oh, you know Snoop Dogg?”
Anywhere less Western and it would’ve been Canada…
My wife and I were in france right after 9-11 (a few months, really) and the entire time people kept apologizing to us. “We are so sorry!” it felt weird.
