What should I expect about living in another culture?

You can expect to experience new languages, foods, sights, smells and sounds! As you encounter these and other experiences, remind yourself that one way is not the “right” way to live and the other way is “wrong.” Seek to embrace the differences and learn as much as you can to appreciate other cultures. You can prepare before you travel by researching your trip location and seeking out a local “outpost” of that culture in your city or area. Find and visit a restaurant that serves authentic food from the culture. Know that your field team will welcome your questions.
