Boys, I would just like to encourage you all to live your life for yourself and don't absolutize anything you read here or elsewhere on the net. Everyone has their OWN experiences that are unique to them and just because you hear this about this type of people or that type of people does not mean that you will have the same experiences that others have had. In fact you will most likely not have the same experiences as others. It is better to live and travel with a mind free of preconceived notions. The only way to understand another culture is to live there for a long time and learn their language. Otherwise you will just be placing your own expectations on things.. This plan is sure to fail..
