Description:
Liege, Belgium [August 1, 1905]  pavement as on the sidewalk. = I cannot distinguish English people from French people, here in this town with certainty. A young English couple near us in the restaurant might easily have been French so far as their appearance went but the American seems to be sui generis and is fleeced in consequence. Williard (of Kansas) says it is not so in Germany and a Michigan man says it is not so in England. The passport of the American is "Hello" as that of the Britisher is "I say" or "Bloody." I had to wait half an hour for the Royal ::::::::: [Liege, Belgium] August 1, 1905  Museum in Antwerp to open. Two tourists were sitting on the steps. One grinned and said: "Hello." (He saw in the first place that I was a tourist from the camera slung over my shoulder and the Baedeker in my pocket). I replied "Hello." "American" said he. "Yes," said I. "Cleveland" said he. "Californian," said I. Then we fell to talking. We Californians always style ourselves such, while other states say "Americans." This has led to the jesting remark that we of California have not yet found out that we are a part of the U.S.! From the Citadel a series of stone steps leads straight down into the city.
