This article was in VIA, the AAA magazine, and it struck me as an interesting little bit of sociological research.
Read it and think about what other cultures might notice if visiting you and your family here in Modesto.
Write a short essay telling me what you think foreign visitors might find the same in our culture as theirs, and what
they might find different.
Alternatively, you may choose to write what you found the same and different when visiting another culture.
The point of this exercise is to be aware of what YOUR culture is! Think of the things you do and accept everyday
and how that could change if you lived somewhere else. It is about non-material culture, the ways we behave, the rules
by which we live, the things we accept and don't accept as "how it's done". This is NOT about landscapes or houses,
but about the expectations we have for how to live.
