What do our international visitors say about Vermont and the US? Our visitors this year were amazed that:
You can walk right into the State House--that would never happen in our countries.
Anyone can walk in the Memorial Day parade.
Many Americans know very little about the rest of the world.
Opposition politicians can freely oppose the ruling party.
There is so much poverty in the U.S.
