Im studying abroad during spring in spain. My roommates were laughing and saying i better start trying to look more hispanic or im going to get killed. I thought it was funny at first but then i started think maybe i should try look a little more hispanic and a little less American. Not because im ashamed of who i am but because i wonder if it really as bad as movies and people portray it to be, like people being kid napped and sold as sex slaves and held for ransom. I hope its not as bad as it seems.

  1. Anywhere you go as a tourist you will stand out. As long as you don’t go to the extremely bad parts of Europe, just like in America, you will be fine.

  2. I think the impression that you would be kidnapped is slightly out of sync when visiting a country like Spain. However poorer countries in south america and africa might pose a different situation, I don’ think you’re under any extreme danger. Though when I travel, I at least try not to look like a tourist simply because it makes things easier and you don’t stand out so much. Good luck in our travels.
