Awhile back, I was fortunate to have one of my articles published in Elephant Journal about culture shock.
Living in a low context culture and often traveling to high context cultures, I find myself trapped in some type of limbo between who I am and who I am supposed to be.
Here is the link to the article:

I get nervous each time I land in new territory. Learning how local people communicate is my first step to formulating an approach, exploring a new place.
Why is this?” – quoted from 5 Tips to Cope with Culture Shock at Home
