I learnt something today, well two things, if you call learning how to re-format and re-install windows on my parents PC. I learnt about something called "Paris syndrome".
Most westerners know about the almost legendary rudeness of the French, and particularly people from Paris. However, it comes as a shock to Japanese who have a romaticised view of the French, little knowing about their arrogance and attitude. Apparently four Japanese people have had to be re-patriated to Japan this year alone with medical assistance, so shocked have these Japanese people been.

Can anyone think of a UK equivilent or is there somewhere elsewhere in the world even worse than Paris that deserves a syndrome named after it ?
