how the world sees america

The Next 100 Days

This is where I'm thinking of going over the next hundred days, for Part II of How the World Sees America. Bosnia & Herzegovina, Turkey and Syria to the Philippines and Indonesia to Colombia and Argentina. What do you think?

Wow! What an exciting set of countries. I'm trying not to be envious. For this round, I hope to hear from a different set of religious voices than last time. More specifically, I feel inundated with Christian/Muslim/Jewish perspectives of America and would love to get a glimpse of how Buddhists, Zoroastrians, B’ahais, etc. perceive us.

Amar:

Hi Celsus, I'd certainly down with more spots.

For Africa I was thinking Nigeria and Liberia (or Ethiopia). And Russia would be a great one, as would Japan. Nothing's decided yet and will probably unravel somewhat unexpectedly.

After the project is done, whenever that is, I plan to go around the U.S. for a month or two posting a bit on various communities and seeing what type of responses this project gets.

Thanks for following,
Amar

The Celsus:

Wow! That covers just about everything -- I am looking forward to fresher insights.

Oh wait; are we to expect a "How the World Sees America" Part III with stories from the Pacific Islands/US "territories"? It might be interesting to hear the perspectives of US "nationals" who watch the mainland from a distance...oh, and while I am at it, how about the entire landmass at the center of that map? Africa is so neglected! Also, when are we to expect the "Big Fish" -- China, Japan, Russia etc? Part IV?

Closely following...
