If I want to say two things that I've learned since coming to Libya, I would first say: "Do not judge things early" and the next thing would be that, traveling can incredibly feed mind and make it rich.
Giving typical comments about each country is the easiest action that people usually take. It doesn't matter what your nationality is and how educated you are. You can always fall into this trap and seem like an ignorant person in a truly hilarious way :). The only prescription to prevent this from happening is "Traveling". Travel to see the reality and SEE when you travel.
This gets more important when the time comes for you to decide where you want to live and raise your family. You'll definitely need that real picture at that time.
