  • We may think we know, and they make think they know, but it really is impossible to really know something until you have lived it and experienced it. My in-laws are from another country, as much learning as they had done, NOTHING could prepare them for this country. I know that I would feel the same if I went over there. Culture shock is not pretty.

  • I'm sure they do, since in the whole scheme of things we are pretty new. Their history is thousands of years older than ours!
