Indonesia is not a "dirty" country at all ... have you ever been to Bali or Jakarata?  Obviously not, but they are wonderful places.

 

 


Just  a proud American who loves the USA. I have no desire to visit far off lands when I live in a great land such as ours. It saddens me to see us outsource American talent to foreign nations.


America usually has higher standards for food and many other products. Most of the world is DIRTY!!! Outdoor markets with live animals; food being sold in unsanitary conditions (not wrapped or refrigerated.) Many products from overseas is also TOXIC!!!

This thread makes me want to go out and buy something specifically made in Chile. I’m torn between anger and sadness at some peoples’ attitudes.

@bikerbabe   I will join you.  Some of the sentiments have had the identical effect on me.  

 

The next time I am at the liquor store I'm going to pick up a bottle of Chilean wine.  I know we get grapes from Chile and I think some of our cut flowers come from there.

 

We export food items to Chile and I suspect these USA exporters of food and food ingredients would be unhappy to lose this customer base.

Just have to say, I’ve traveled there, Chile is a beautiful country.

And they produce some absolutely delightful wines! I'm a particular fan of their Sauvignon Blancs.

@ID2  Some people have health issues and it's not easy or they are not able to go to the store. Surely everyone must know this.


 

@proudlyfromNJ  many of us have not left our homes in months because of the scourge.  And more than a few here are on Oxygen.


@Reever why do you continually presume that you can speak for others? Speak for yourself, only yourself, and let others do the same.

Re: Supermarket delivered condensed milk from CHILE !

@kivah :  America has decent food but definitely not the best, overall.  Personally I think France, Germany and Italy (among others) have great overall good quality.  To the poster who said she doesn't need to try other countrys dirty ( whatever) I say your narrow point of view is your loss ( of opportunities to gain enjoyment and valuable experiences).  Reminds me of years ago when I invited a friend and her visitor to share a visit to Central Coast of California.  She refused to go to Solvang or Hearst Castle, declare them " tourist traps" ( yes they are but no more than Hollywood, Disneyland, etc) she wouldn't even entertain going.
