74. Ten Things I Like in US!

1. Friendliness, Open-mindedness & Attitude
Having worked a wide range of customers across the globe, from malaysians, to Japanese to Europeans till the americans, I find Americans as one of the most friendliest folks on this planet. Their broad smile, and "How are you,whats going on?" conversations starts your day lively. Be it their pleasant customer care at the mall or their pleasant attitude to allow the pedestrians cross a jam packed road, they always showcase the right attitude. With a population of more than 300 million, this country boasts diverse ethnical races living here:

White americans(european americans, middle eastern americans(arab/Iranian), central asian americans) 75%, Blacks or African american -12.1%, Asian american - 4.1%, American Indian - 0.8%, native hawaiians or pacific islander - 0.1%, other races - 6%, two or more races - 1.9%

2. Freeways & Highways

Yes, topping second on my list are the innumerous highways of US - be it some of the most confusing highways(such as I-45 in Texas, shown in picture, I stands for Interstate) or the notorious I-5 in the westcoast covering most of the western US (california,mexico, Oregon), the highways and freeways in US are a picturesque treat to watch. With few exceptions though(people drive like maniacs! in California, New-Jersey,NewYork and chicago), most people strictly follow the rules when they drive. And by the way toll free highways are called "Freeways". And to frankly admit, I always have this eerie feeling of discomfort when I drive on highways, especially when I miss the exits! :)

3. Unbounded beauty of nature

Be it the giant redwood trees of california or the huge niagra falls or the gorgeous grand canyon, US is blessed with a wide variety of fauna and flora. Just peep on to the picture to see me like a speck of dust standing in front of two giant sequoias in California.

Damn true IA. You are always recognized for your ahrdwork no matter how competitive others are. Travel, adventure and beauty with less pollution is all about it.

Ther is a passion of saying "our country" and they work hard to keep it together and not divide and rule.
