We are often unaware of the cultural norms of our own society until we visit another country. When you first visited another country did you have any experience that suddenly made you aware of a norm you hadn’t realized you held? Describe this experience and the norm involved.
I agree that we are often unaware of the cultural norms in our own society. After visiting America, I noticed that Americans have one different norm from us. The one different norm is that they keep their shoes on when there inside their house. After entering my cousins house and watching their whole family not take their shoes off was weird to watch. I was thinking to myself that their tracking in a lot of dirt. Then walking into there house and watching them lay on their couches with there shoes on, I was just completely shocked that people do this. To them they were confused on why I looked confused. They have always worn there shoes in their house so after I told them how I don't wear my shoes in the house and how its wrong, their reactions were just the same as mine when I saw them walk into their house with their shoes on.
