    Hey guys,

    What is the country / culture that you believe or assume is very different from your own culture and that you are interested in seeing or traveling to?

    For me, it has to be the Far East. Especially Japan. It has always fascinated me and I think I will see traditions and cultures different than my own region.

    It's way too easy to think of cultures that are extremely different from mine (British-descendent Canadian).

    I definitely want to check out a bunch of the Middle-East (Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, Syria and even Iran)

    India's definitely up there.

    Central Africa sounds great too.

    I have lots of English / American friends and they have this perception about Lebanon that it is very different from the culture they were raised in, and when they visit they are surprised at the similarities they find between their country and mine icon_smile.gif

    Ya that's true. All the Middle-East places I named are modern (or at least are so in the big cities). I'd say that's the vast majority of the world as well, in this age.

    For me Russia was quite an experience when I studied there. Actually, I was surprised to find out how modern Russian values are pretty much the same as values of Western Europe and the Americas. They basically have the same goals and aspirations as anyone else.

    However, they definitely have quite a few quirky things going for them. It's very interesting to look at any Russian street and see what buildings were built during Soviet times, pre-Soviet times, and post-Soviet times. You can find buildings of all periods of their history on the same street.

    Also, superstitions die hard in Russia even among those who claim to be atheist. They are a big deal.

    Any culture that emphasizes open relationships is on the other side of the scale for me.
