Tourists are usually considered to be easy targets, getting hassled by thieves, getting robbed etc. This kind of situations can ruin your experience, and make you dislike the local people who are actually warm and friendly.

More studies suggest that bilingual or trilingual people manifest different personalities depending on which language they are using. Is this something inherent to each language or it just has something to do with different cultural environments in which those languages are beeing used, we don’t know. What do you think?
