    Maybe some moderator should split those posts into an own thread about continental missunderstanding.

    I know a boy who went to America to study for a year, and everyone at school was keeping on asking him if he spoke Swedish Also, in history class, the teacher was speaking of the Vikings, and she was saying (to him), "oh, you should know this, these are your people."
    Also, everyone thought ht was Skandinavian, and all were asking how he survived in the cold of that far north.

    (If it is not clear, of course he is from Switzerland, not Sweden )

    Right in front of my very own stunned eyes, an elder Greek struggled to eat a wrapped hot towel at a fancy restaurant, thinking it was some kind of dessert.

    To me, the best comedy ever made about how Europe is seen through the eyes of the stereotypical American is Eurotrip. An absolute must see!!

    Russians believe all westerners shower more!
    I went to an elderly female doctor in Moscow once. She asked me how often I shower, and I exaggerated and said twice a week [instead of a month ] and then she said "Oh, that's alright, but most of you Westerners shower FAR too much, and damage your skin!"

    I think the standard question I get from most americans is something like: "Have you been in the Hitler Youth?" in 99pct of all cases it is something about Hitler. I then go ahead and call everyone N*gger and tell them that is the usual term in Germany, I don't know any other, or something like that, no one is bothered then, poor misguided Germans

    An american tourist asked this woman cook at a greek taverna, if she puts too much oil in the food because of the deprivation she suffered during the German occupation.

    ...she was less than 40 years old.
