If there was one thing that I would say was the same the world over then it would be this: people are generally helpful and kind. It seems a bit contrived and arguably idealistic; however, in my experience, it has been proven accurate. Perhaps it is exemplified by the fact that I find myself the lost foreigner more often the most. I end up moving to new countries with a basic grasp of the language and the culture. Therefore, I am forced to ask for help a great deal.
