Some countries might consume anglo media/culture but dont fully assimilate it, because their home cultures are too distinct and diverge from the anglo mentality.

UK,US, Australia,Canada, New Zealand and Ireland are a different cultural bubble from the Rest.


Some countries who could come close are South Africa and Israel on lesser degree.

Bogota is a fertile breeding ground for Anglo culture appropriation. From drinking tea between 3-5pm to Turkey roast a lot of this has its origins in the 7,000+ British and Irish legion that fought for Colombian independence. Many bogotanos without knowing it have more British or Irish ancestry than they do Spanish, usually a fifth or a quarter in heritage.

Brit-pop, British electro & dubstep have huge cult followings in Bogota especially. Even 2tone Ska and Oi music is a thing.

Yes, but if we perform a deep analysis to each country, we cannot categorise any country in the division west/east/south. There are a lot of exceptions and distinct nuances according to the time. Moreover, Japan is not the only US ally and industrialised country in the East. South Korea and Taiwan would be included as well.

^^^^ Agreed. Who knew? Not me.

I had a dated impression of Colombia based on the whole drug cartel period of the 80s. But based on recent photos, it looks beautiful and tourist friendly, with an interesting history.

Perhaps a visit is in order...

To someone who feels eternally sunbaked, dehydrated, and chapped, it sounds lovely.

Lol - I guess the saying is true, the grass is always greener. Although currently Britain's weather is pretty glorious, ask me again towards March however.
