Hear about different areas of the world from natives of those countries!

“If man is to survive, he will have learned to take a delight in the essential differences between men and between cultures. He will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life's exciting variety, not something to fear.”  ― Gene RoddenberrySee More

Many, many thanks to you, Poornima, for your friendship, lessons on peaceful living and generous support of the CommUnity Youth Mosaic wall project. The hours of work you spent creating the slide show and video to preserve the mosaic experience is a gift that I will always treasure. Thank you, friend - UBUNTU! fondly, Lisa

In general, the most meaningful cultural experience for me so far has been being a minority. I was clearly in the cultural minority teaching on the Sisseton Wahpeton reservation. Overseas, as an American, I was usually a minority in my own classroom, in restaurants, shopping in markets, at parties and cocktails, and daily life. It gave me a new understanding and a very small taste of what minorities live each day, how that might feel, issues that might arise by being in the minority culture. Not everyone in the group you are in shares your common values, traditions, and beliefs. I think it is healthy to remember one's own culture is not the best, the only or the most important. I am certainly a more accepting, understanding and aware person for my experiences living in foreign countries.

We do not have much diversity in our town. We hope to pull in a few more spanish speaking students from the surrounding area, but it is quite a drive for them to come to our town. After thirteen years overseas in international schools, being back in small town SD has been a shock. I miss so much about being surrounded by diverse people and cultures every day - miss the ethnic food too!

My first cross cultural experiences came when I married my husband, who is from Boston! I am from a small town in the Midwest, everything about Boston was new to me. I did not realize things could be so different from one part of the country to another! One of the things I did wrong was to spend hours looking for wedding gifts. After my first few wedding, Mike's mother gently let me know that in their culture it is polite to give money for gifts! -Sure saved a great deal of time, but I felt foolish for the other gifts I had given!
