I just spent seven weeks in Bolivia. Most people were great, but about 50% of the taxi drivers refused to take me to my destinations. I saw the same thing happening to Bolivians. I spent several hours each day in the small pharmacy owned by friends in La Paz. Their level of service to customers (and even strangers) was exemplary. I was treated very well in retail stores.
I am now in Peru. Stores here that cater to tourists often have very pushy clerks completely devoid of common sense and good manners. (While the tourist is looking at one item, the clerk will often thrust other merchandise into the customer´s face.) In shopping centers, however, the treatment is excellent.
Everything is relative, including relatives.
countryman = paisano
someone from the country = caipira
