Just been on a short foray into a foreign culture. As always, it's an eye opener. The exotic leopard skin pattern clothing and thick facial paint. The half understood overheard conversations about alien social rituals. The array of unfamiliar tools and potions, whose use may only be guessed at. The mutual curiosity, but also incomprehension, about each other's life styles and priorities... Yup, I've been for my pre-holiday visit to the hairdressers for a cut. It's like another world. Where do you people go occasionally and feel you're in an alien culture?
