c) Ask the locals
As we meet different people in our travels, we are hoping for opportunities to ask them a few questions about their lives. We don’t anticipate sitting there with a clipboard and pen…though we *might* jot down some answers on a serviette or the back of a bus ticket. These are the questions we’ll have stored away in the back of our minds as we seek to learn and understand.
