Orientation materials

Neighbors East and West trips emphasize friendship and people-to-people contact.  We believe that in
order to make the most of this kind of tavel experience, it is beneficial to learn about the culture and customs of
the country you are visiting, as well as a small understanding of the language.

We have assembled the following materials and links, which should be helpful in this regard.  We encourage you
to read what you can, starting with the specific orientation materials from Jerry Dekker and Steve Fryberg.

Much of this material has come to us through suggestions of the 2008 travelers, and others.  If you have additional
suggestions for useful books, movies, or other items, let us know and we shall add them to the list.
