Going home

Regardless if you try to assimilate to the host culture or not, you often adopt some of the norms of your host country. Norms can be changed by the way you behave, and you have had to exist within the local framework. Perhaps you have been using public transportation at home, but if you live where no reliable or safe public transportation is available you have to rely on other alternatives. If you stay long enough in a foreign country, you may have changed so much that you will get a new culture shock when you return home.
