America is still the land known as "the melting pot" where people from anywhere in the world can find a way to thrive without completely abandoning their home culture or customs. Because Americans are so accommodating of other people's cultural backgrounds it can be relatively easy to find a place where you will fit right in and quickly feel at home.
In other countries around the world, oftentimes the recent immigrant would be expected to assimilate fully with their new home country and traditions and customs of the old home country might not be as tolerated as you will find is the case in America. In many of the large cities you will find neighborhoods that will instantly transport you to other lands. San Francisco, in California, for instance, is home to the largest China Town (a sprawling neighborhood of predominantly Chinese Americans) outside of Asia.
Not far from China Town in San Francisco is the neighborhood known as North Beach which is home to a vibrant Italian American community. The sidewalk cafes are reminiscent of those in Europe. Many times you will hear the shop owners and their customers conversing in Italian. San Francisco is a wonderful example of the melting pot experience but most larger cities have similar neighborhoods where immigrants have settled and created an atmosphere that reminds them of the country of their origin.
