‘ease with which an American can get a visa’ more like.

Oh, so that’s why we have a shitload of Chinese tourists in St.Petersburg all the time - we are meanies sticking together.

As a Chinese person, I hope to go to St. peterse one day. I’ve seen images and the architecture is beautiful.

I like anywhere that combines classical and socialist architecture in one place.

I have every Petersburger’s medical condition that makes me not go out and see absolutely everything, cAuSe I lIvE hErE aLrEaDy, but, yeah, It’s kinda surreal at times, man. We got traditional Russian churches, baroque, neoclassicism, socmodernism, a few brutalist and even neogothic pieces up in this removed. Come and have fun=)

That is everyone who lives anywhere

As a forgeiner in the country where I currently live, I have some things I’d like to point out.

I’m white and from Western Europe. I moved to another Western European country. Sometimes, the natives here are talking about foreigners when they are with me. When I point out that I am also a foreigner, I can hear the gears in their heads grinding. When they talk about foreingers, they talk about non-white people. This country is to a certain extent welcoming to white people, but not to other foreigners. There is no progressive culture regarding non white people. It’s all a facade. And it’s not only directed to non-white foreigners. Even white people from Eastern Europe get shit on. And even to me they are sending mixed signals. When it’s convenient for them, I’m one of their own, when it’s not convenient for them, I’m an outsider.

I have, however, never had these problems with non-white foreigners or in non-white countries for some reason. Fuck this map.

If you don’t mind me asking, do you live in the uk?

Probably based off some nonsense like “do tourists have the ‘freedom’ to utterly disrespect the local culture or reside for lengthy periods of time gentrifying without contributing anything of value?”

I wonder how the UAE is one of the most welcoming countries to foreigners when they do not even enjoy basic labour protections there

World Economic Forum, now it makes sense

I know people who visited Iran and me and my family visited Russia a number of times because cousin lives there and I don’t know what the people who made the map are smoking…

me and my family visited Russia

Hey, cool! How’d it go?

We were of course in Lenin’s mausoleum a couple of times, Red Square, where brought ushanka and babushkas of course, we were also in Siberia, Vladivotstok, Samara and Leningrad

When the reason why the Netherlands are blue on this map is also the reason why the Netherlands are blue on this map

Took me a minute. Beautifully put!

On the other hand, Japan is THE most xenophobic country in East Asia. To the point where if you’re not ethnic Japanese, you can never get full citizenship, it’s “citizenship lite” at best with a corresponding note in your passport. You want an example of an ethnostate? Japan.

Also, don’t watch anime that features a person of colour if you’re a person of colour. You’ll regret it.

I mean it’s kinda crazy they put it blue on the map, even the capitalist press writes non stop about Japan xenophobia. Hell, even hardcore weebs who actually visit always notice it.

But Bulgaria, country with huge and old tourism sector, is in red. It seems they aren’t even trying anymore, they just always put up the same map for everything, just with few completely random changes.

A ton of effort went into rehabbing Japan’s image after WW2, all while the US propped up a far right government.

They threw a damn party for my friend whose family is originally from Iran. His first time going as a young American teen, and everyone his family knew showed up to the airport.

Its always the same map.
