Disrespectful towards developing countries

What planet are you on?
Who still says ‘third world’??

Despite all these tips and tricks you present, you sound disconnected from the rest of the civilised world, talking about developing countries in such derogatory tones.

A big part of the privilege of being able to travel around the world is the pleasure of experiencing foreign cultures and respecting their countries and traditions; not continuing to refer to them as ‘third world’ (not a one time slip) and being surprised that they’re not the only countries with dirty kitchens.

Shameful.
