Is the Culture Our Students Observe in the Community "Authentic"

I was intrigued by this story about the cultural gaps between Chinatowns and China in the most recent Inside Illinois.

My students work with recent immigrants who are not "selling" their community to outside tourists.

However, the article brought to mind this question:

For students who have studied abroad, what cultural differences do they note between the Spanish-speaking country where they lived and the Latino community in Champaign-Urbana?
