Mixing cultures can be a great learning experience - though I'm not sure about that when it comes to eating bugs! But I have
come to love Sushi!
My wife was Japanese and planning our wedding (and her funeral) had to be approved by her very steeped-in culture family - we actually had two weddings, one according to her culture and one to just "have fun (a Medieval theme)".
You don't have to embrace a culture to experience it and learn about it - and to share your own! Now, if I could just figure what Jaffa is talking about half the time... (vegemite? Ewwwwww)
