happy new year :) and thanks for following me
"When meeting people from a foreign culture, offer a few gifts that reflect your interests as a gesture of friendship. Better yet, give things that you’ve created yourself. Also explore *their* interests and *their* culture. Ultimately, the best way to forge a lasting friendship is to create something together. Whether it’s a meal, an art project, or a spontaneous dance party, when you create something with others, you build a connection that lasts a lifetime."
