When I arrived in Germany, I was of the opinion that the US was unique in its degree of insularity.  Then I kept running into English who spoke only English and who knew roughly squat about anyplace but their own locale.  Rather like the English couple in Casablanca (The husband gets his pocket picked.).  Then I realized we'd simply inherited it, with local modifications.
