Americans are usually the friendliest people on your tour bus. And they probably saved your country at one time or another in the last 200 years or so. But here is how to really spot them — they:
1. Are loud.
2. Are talking on a smartphone. Loudly.
3. Are wearing sneakers. Loud ones.
4. Say “awesome!” all the time. Loudly.
5. Have on colorful shorts. Loud colors.
6. Ask for directions or other information. Loudly.
7. Laugh a lot. Loudly.
