Coming in Right*

Entering a new cultural context requires important traits on the part of the newcomer. We, as visitors to South Africa, will keep in mind the following:

  • humility
  • curiosity
  • flexibility
  • respect

Our hosts, drivers, and teachers are generous as they share with us the social realities with which they live. We are grateful to them and anticipate a rich, challenging and rewarding month!
