In this book, we try to address what is “normal” or common practice, including key similarities and differences. While not strictly intended as a how-to book, we have included suggestions and some do’s and don’ts for both cultures. We have also included many stories and anecdotes throughout this book to illustrate particular points or to represent certain aspects of character. After working through many of the issues presented here ourselves, it seemed like a good thing to share our findings with others. While we have done a bit of research, a great deal of the material, and certainly the inspiration for this book, comes from personal experience and stories we’ve heard from other travelers.
