what are the most common stereotypes about your country?

 

" are you from Russia?! mmmm. mmmmm or Wow !"  What does it mean? Let me guess.... It means  a set of  stable  associations: Russia/ vodka / Bears  .. red square, the Soviet Union/ snow and then( maybe ) Dostoyevsky, Tchaikovsky, Stanislavski e .t.c.
I thought it was in the past.Am i wrong?

May be , many sterotypes (or all) are created  because of the movies...

Mexico has many of them

Could be, people with strange hats (too big ones), eating "tacos" or "burritos" and lying near a "nopal".

 

Also (of course), the accent and some "special phrases"

"Andale Wey, vente pa' ca" haha !

 

If you have more, comment!
 

 

About Italy:Of course everyone knows Don Corleone-this image of a typical Italian ,a good  Pizza and Pasta,trains  who are late.Its funny becouse for me it is a country of the Italian Renaissance and  beautiful art <Leonardo Michelangelo, Scarlatti Visconti Antonioni  е t с 

 

by the way I myself have a few stereotypes about Mexico: Tequilla, drugs, everything that forbids America allows Mexico

A few sterotypes about my country America: there is too much gun violence and crime in America, there are too many fat Americans, because they eat too much fast food, there is too much greed and materialism in America, and there is an intolerance of foreigners who don't speak English.   Of course, these are just sterotypes that are not necessarily true. 

Brazil: we party too much, don't work that hard, are friendly, have a weird online laughter, have nice, tanned bodies, so on and so forth. I could go on forever. We all dance samba and go to the beach. The girls are hot, the guys are handsome. We always have a smile in our faces. We're loud, passionate, and have strong family values. We're mostly happy even though we live in a violent, poverty stricken society.

Some of these are true, but I won't tell you which ones. You'd have to come to Brazil to figure it out!
