This is a very genuine and good article. Obviously what is so nice about your article is that it will open up more minds around the issue of culture shock, and ultimately help Rwandans to be more receptive to the same when they see foreigners experience it.
Rwanda has a lot to offer to the world in terms of good cultural practices and many foreigners will undoubtedly assimilate to some of its aspects and love to even call it theirs in the end.
As for Rwandans who have naturally become victims of foreign cultural influences, they would hopefully be forgiven, won’t they?
