When going out your country first thing to have in mind is an open mind; people think that they will find same things thats normal in home, but this is a major mistake; if you judge on your term and own experience you are losing part of the experience and the adventure of traveling.

Be open, play safe!; Respect others people culture and values, their are different from your but equally valid. I have travel across the world to finally visit India and expend beautiful weeks there. You have embrace local culture and understand it; most people enjoy sharing their culture and know what things are similar with yours. Even the different things are valuable and help us value more our own world.
I had a couple of great experiences sharing information about food! the way we cook some fruits and vegetables very similar to us here in Mexico; eating classic dishes and pastries.

Open mind to receive the traveler, open mind when visiting others, I’m sure will grant you great experiences and true friends!
We become more tolerant and understanding others way of life, that’s why traveling is a way to become a world citizen.
