The first impression of the United States was discipline. People of the United States of America are very disciplined. They are careful about the Health and Hygiene, they are very Punctual. For Example: if any American gives somebody a time 9 o’clock, so it means 9’o clock exactly. Roads and streets are very clean and beautiful. United States is technologically advanced and people use technology like smartphone, electric rice cookers, electric gates, electric kettles ete in their daily life.
The thing which really surprised me was friendliness of the American people. I was thinking that they are friendly but are also reserved. When I came here, I was warmly welcomed by the people of America like they know me for years. They treat me like I am one of them. They helped me to offer prayer in Mosque and asked me about my religious restriction of the food. Cooked only those items which came in the Islamic domain. It really changed my perception, and I was not expecting this friendliness before coming to United States.
