Leave the people you meet with a favorable impression of North Americans so as not to make things more difficult for those who follow. Be gracious. Lower your voice. Have patience. Be flexible. * Latinos are very warm and will try to make you feel at home. Be careful with this, though with unknown men on the streets. A “no hablo español” will help you to get out of uncomfortable situations. * Men are rude sometimes and they will yell “compliments” or whistle to you (women) on the streets.
