I'm speaking from my own experience here, so bear with me. Prior to going to Germany I expected Germans to be stiff, rigid and unyielding people, possibly because their language sounds so guttural and even a little harsh. Well, was I in for a pleasant surprise! Germans are people who know how to party and have fun. They are also hard workers and self-disciplined people who are friendly and will readily give you a hand if you need help. I made lots of friends there and have wonderful memories of Germany. However the opposite is true of Hawaii. The Hawaiian population is made up for the most part of people from Filipino and Japanese descent. Native Hawaiians are generally very friendly and even funny, but the Filippino and Japanese are in my opinion very hard to work with and to understand, especially if you know very little about their culture. They are rigid, inflexible and extremely demanding. For that reason I would not choose to go back to Hawaii. I could also blast some myths about Mexico, Italy, Spain and France but that would make for too long an answer.
