Being Silly in Other Places

The number one thing to remember while planning to be silly in other places is that other cultures might not be so welcoming of your silliness as your own.  On the other hand, finding a community of ex-pats who might be longing for some silliness can help you feel more at home, and also gives you something to do in the evening when you might not necessarily have other plans, and watching TV no longer sounds like fun.

Who can facilitate your silliness?

    Where’d you get the idea that this culture welcomes your silliness, Claire?

  2. Claire Litton Says:

    Well, put it this way; you’re unlikely to get thrown in jail for being silly in Canada or the United States. Otherwise, I just force my silliness on my culture and pretend they’re okay with it. :)
