I think that it's kind of duty to not ignore our own goods and take care of them. If people from given nation won't take care of their heritage, noone will. It takes a lot of dedication to search out hidden gems and you can't play Indiana Jones in all possible areas, so most people focus at one. I find it quite obvious that before going elsewhere someone with ambitions of exploring should begin with his own backyard. That's why I'm always glad to see newcomers from other countires than USA. Anyway, I belive in cultural exchange and to take part in it you just have to put some effort in gaining knowledge about yours.
