Forgive me for the awful video quality (I had to use a webcam, which made me look blue!), forgive me for my awkwardness and goofiness (I was nervous), and forgive me for my accent (which I am often told is very difficult to understand?).
In this video I talk about my ‘touching the feet of elders’ experience. I hope someone, somewhere will find it helpful! I think when someone finds themselves in a new culture, it is always good to try to understand the culture’s customs, but it’s also important to remember that people will understand these customs are new to you. So, it’s unlikely you are going to upset or offend anyone if you cannot do them correctly, try not to get too anxious about it (difficult, I know)!
Humans are generally an understanding bunch, just try your best and smile! You will learn with time and everyone will be so happy that you’ve made the effort.
