Abstract: Living in a foreign country is very different from visiting it as a tourist, moving about in a regimented way, peering from busses, listening to megaphoned information, stopping at intervals for a hurried look at something of special interest. Living in a new country over a period of months is a sensitizing experience. It revives some of the fresh outlook and wonder of childhood in seeing things for the first time. There is time to investigate and arrive at conclusions, to get acquainted with many things from strange insects to titled folk; there is the opportunity to weed out prejudices and discover the merits of another way of life, to enjoy its beauty and share its problems.
