I'm back in the Bay Area, the land of xDSL and wireless networking, if nothing else.
Living in a different culture, even if it is for a short duration of only a few weeks, casts a different light on life. One senses it best when one is going through the transitions and when one experiences the other culture as a true alternative for living.
Tolerance and ability to accept cultural variations as means for understanding fellow human beings librate us and disclose worlds and possibilities.
As I wrote earlier, "the late British philosopher, Bernard Williams, used to ask, how can we judge another culture or mode of living unless we can find ourselves in a position to consider it as a real alternative to our own?"
