A person who travels to a foreign country may adopt one of several attitudes to the customs and traditions of the country he enters. He may seek to view it in relationship to his own culture, and tend to accept what he finds familiar while ignoring or avoiding what is alien to him. Or he may adopt a kind of ‘colonial’ philosophy, imposing his own system of values and beliefs over the native culture in front of him. Or he may attempt to understand and appreciate as much as he can of the country’s own beliefs and attitudes, in order to understand how the inhabitants live and act.
