I have gained a much different outlook on foreigners or tourist after studying abroad in China. I had originally thought that I might be frowned up or disliked as being American. I quickly learned that this was not the case. I felt very welcomed while studying abroad as every was very friendly and helpful. This really enhanced my trip and is something I really hadn't expected. What it made me realize is how I treat those that I meet that are traveling abroad. It isn't as if I have ever treated someone visiting America poorly, I've never just been as enthusiastic and friendly as I experience in China. I really want to behave more friendly and helpful as I feel it really effects your experience when traveling abroad.
