I Hate the Ugly American

Or any purposefully rude tourist one thing that really made me cringe was when I visited morocco and Lebanon and I saw people walking around in less than adequate amount of clothing in the street I was so embarrassed and in disbelief. It was warm to hot outside but honestly men and women walking around with skimpy clothes that were very disrespectful of the local culture I saw some locals giving them disapproving uncomfortable glances. I was so embarrassed to look at that. For Beirut depends what part of town you are in ( christians and Muslims make a good percentage each) and even in cosmopolitan cities like Casablanca,Marrakech etc. you need to understand it's an Islamic country! I saw a couple of tourists literally with beer bottle in the street among other behaviors again what you may be acceptable where you live is not always socially embraced in other countries openly 😡 Don't people research before going abroad anymore?

I'm afraid we're in the age of "entitlement", respect and self-awareness has passed. It's so sad. Thank you for bringing this to light.
