space, the roles of men and women, and communication styles seem foreign to the people you encounter. You are hungry and need to get something to eat. Where will you choose to go? How will you interact with the people to get what you need? Describe what this experience would be like. Give one example of how a miscommunication could occur.
What are some ways you might seek to be understood? How can this thought experiment help you in your daily life.
