This is a question Travel

I've had guns pointed at me in many different countries, sometimes even by our own side. I've also sat on my own on a beach on a desert island, which was nice because nobody was trying to shoot me. Tell us your tales of foreign travel.

Thanks to SnowytheRabbit for the suggestion

Funny Foreigners, genuinely.
On my third or fourth visit to New York I went to a quiet bar on a midweek night with a couple of local friends. I went up to the bar and ordered a round of drinks, and the barmaid said as she was pouring,

"So, where's that accent from then?"

"London" I replied (not true but it's the simplest answer)

"What, England?". Being young and a bit sassy in those days I answered,
"No, Iowa" and without missing a beat she replied
"Well, you dress like you're from Iowa."

If the word had been invented in 1990 I'm sure someone would have said "Ba-ZING!"

I think I might have said 'Touché'
which was what we used to say before Seth MacFarlane came along and told us how to be funny.
