•for your adventure makes a world of difference in your enjoyment of it.
Information you'll find most valuable will be included in your final

you can expect to learn about before you go:

expectations for weather, people you will meet, animals you might see,
additional activities you may chose to explore, and a host of other pertinent
A Word about Etiquette and Customs •
As a visitor in any foreign country you should be aware of local customs and
expected behavior. Most of this is common sense, but such things as modest
clothes, respect, and a friendly attitude are all important factors. We'll
discuss appropriate dress when entering churches and mosques, when it's not O.K.
to take photographs, and other important information. The concept of time in
other cultures is often different than ours so patience and politeness are the
best ways to deal with the inevitable delays that will come your way.
