I've been to many places where I've met unfriendly or inhospitable and down right rude people as a traveler. Curt, unhelpful, and obnoxious people are found everywhere I suppose but there are some cities which I've found more than my fair share. -Paris - something about not being able to speak French well irritates many Parisians. - New York City - plenty of assholes in this town, though it's gotten much much better as there are less miserable people living there than in the 90's. Need to go everywhere with a thick crust and attitude of don't fuck with me. -Washinton DC - Not sure why but many rude people in the hospitality industry there. - Tangier- Everyone just wants to hustle you so you just treat everyone with suspicion even the outwardly helpful people. But hustlers outnumber those nice people 10 to 1. - Helsinki - the Finns are not the most hospitable people on Earth, curt and to the point. I don't recall hearing any laughter in the city or seeing anyone smile. - Prague- I hated everything about this city, as beautiful as it was the people ruined it for me. Out of communism all were just to scam and make a buck - never have I seen so many whores lined up on the freeway. Conversely some of the friendliest places I've visited were: Minniapolis, MN - Minnesota Nice Salt Lake City - Mormon hospitality - Hell Marriot Corporation is Mormon. Most of Texas- Very nice friendly outgoing people there, just don't talk politics. Sydney, Australia - Very well adjusted and happy people have been the norm when visiting. Most of Japan - very friendly people especially if you're white and can't speak Japanese. They bend over backwards to help you there. Columbus, GA - My sister lives there and folks just ooze southern hospitality.
