5 observations

proper etiquette
Proper Etiquette

Bathroom Etiquette- I remember in elementary school going to the bathroom was known to be disruptive, or a big deal. I wonder how this will change in Jamaica

Eating Etiquette- In school here, I didn’t enjoy the food. (Pizza, teriyaki chicken, etc. I wouldn’t eat. So I want to see the types of food Jamaican children get in school, and if they actually enjoy it.

Etiquette Continued

Helping Out- It’s polite to hold doors open for other people in America, or pick up something someone dropped and hand it to them, (when on the street) but it may be different in Jamaica.

Dress Etiquette- I only know the styles of Jamaica from word of mouth and music videos, but I do want to see if their modern style is different from our own and if their traditional style is interesting.

romantic relationships
Romantic Relationships

In chapter 5, the discussion of how men/ women show their interest in another was interesting.

Here- Some men holler, smile, wave, buy you drinks, or just come straight to you and talk to you.

Other places- men whistle or holler to catch a girls attention

Jamaica- I’m curious to see the difference if there Is any.

Chapter 6

Remember that just as you

judge from your cultural

standpoint, you are being

judged from theirs.

  • Initial enthusiasm- This is packed with excitement about being in the new environment and having a positive attitude about all the new occurrences.
  • Culture shock- Homesick, no routine, feeling vulnerable.
  • I don’t think I will experience culture shock.
  • 1. Because we will only be around for 1 week.
  • 2. I think I already like Jamaican culture.
  • 3. We will be in hotels.
  • 4. It’s Jamaica (but I could be wrong).
