Subject: RE: BS: Culture clash, German-US/Brit
Personally I think it much more important to be friendly than to be too honest.

But I feel pretty sceptical about whether generalisations like this can be valid across a country as large as Germany. I don't know Germany, but I'm thinking how things vary across the various parts of the British Isles, and that's a lot smaller.
