Thank you for the welcome MarocRulz and SimplyMoroccan.
I am visiting Tangier as a chiropractic student in the Palmer College of Chiropractic clinic abroad program. We will be in Tangier for approximately a week.
I have so many questions, yet I can’t seem to condense my thoughts into specific questions. I want to make sure that I understand the culture well enough so that I do not commit various acts of cultural faus paux.
What should I dress like?
What are the common cultural behaviors that I should be familiar with?
I don’t want to offend anyone’s belief system. What beliefs should I be aware of?
Are there any stereotypes about Americans that I should be aware of?
What will I be expected to “just know” even though I am from a different culture?
I plan on reading as much of this as I can in books about Morocco, but I’ve always been of the belief that books don’t necessarily capture the true picture of everyday life.
I hope those questions are not too general and look forward to hearing your responses.
Thank you again for welcoming me,
