    Jul 27 2012: I would expect only to see and to absorb what that country's identity is, culturally, socially, linguistically, artistically, gastronomically, politically etc.

    I would go there entirely to fit in with them as my hosts, rather than expecting them to adjust their ways to please me as a guest.

    I go abroad to experience the beauty and stimulation of contrasting cultures - never to expect 'England abroad'.
