    And it always seems to go the same way. There's a large influx of one ethnic or regional group. They tend to settle with other immigrants from their region, start businesses, and the store signs and local newspapers reflect their native language; and there's a big "freak out". By the third generation the first generaation are lamenting what the youngsters are coming to, and the kids can no longer speak the mother tongue. A decade or so later the hubs of the culture become quaint, and tourists start visiting Chinatowns, Little Italy's, and other ethnic enclaves to soak up the atmosphers, cuisine, customs, festivals, etc.
