What part of the US is he in. I'm not going to insult you by saying deodorant soap and all that because from my experience in Europe, the Swiss and Italians smelled worse. Seriously I would suggest to bring back a copy of NCAA Football 2003, and some Girl Scout cookies. Samoas, Thin Mints, and Tagalongs are the best. Another thing is bring back a lot of pictures, as I regret not taking more on my trips to India, and Europe. Bringing home a nice American lass wouldn't hurt your friend either.
