By Amy Burkhardt and John Geipel for the Orbitz Travel Blog
As Americans, we love to muse over the national character of other countries: The Germans, they're so efficient! The French are so romantic! The Japanese, so polite! But what do foreign visitors think of us, our habits and lifestyles? What you'll find in this not-terribly-scientific illustrated analysis might surprise you.

They call this 'navel gazing.'  When the media writes articles about itself, it is contemplating its own navel.

We need a lot less 'what do they think of us', and a lot more of 'what do we think of ourselves'?  Soldiers who rape, torture and kill?  Cops who murder their own citizens?  A legislature bent on opposing democracy?  A political party that wages war on women, hates Africans, and departs Hispanics because the way they might vote?

A lot more to be gained elsewhere.
