Culture Clashes around the world

STORY BY: Shirley Huedepohl
YEAR: 1975
LOCATION: East Africa, Saskatchewand and Montreal

Shirley tells us about when she went to Montreal, and a taxi driver honked and chased a bus off the road. "You didn't do that in Saskatoon!" She also talks about East Africa, where she taught for 5 years and had two children. Many years later, back in Canada, she meets the new African-born minister at her Church, and it turns out that he lived only 100 kilometers from where she had taught. He tells her that "You taught the leaders of my country!" Thanks for sharing, Shirley.
