As with any experience in a new culture, be sure to travel with a spirit of humility and with a genuine desire to learn more about the people on your journey. Be sensitive to the feelings of other people, preventing what might be offensive behavior on your part. Cultivate the habit of listening and observing, rather than merely hearing and seeing. Acquaint yourself with local customs; people will help you. Spend time reflecting on your daily experiences in an attempt to deepen your understanding.
