Foreign Travel Etiquette

I am constantly asked questions about how to act when traveling to a foreign country, what the local customs are, how to interact with locals, and how not to look like the ugly American tourist.  Americans tend to be more casual with their interactions, which can be frowned upon in other countries.  Things like tipping, socializing, drinking, eating, driving and even shopping can be very different from country to country.  Over the next couple weeks I am going to post some very good tips from the Vayama.com and Travel Etiquette websites along with a few personal observations for the countries I have visited.  I hope you enjoy the postings.
