We met in the middle.
Two cultures colliding.
It has worked out.
Allan is a really respectful boy.
At first I would get a bit frustrated by his awkward/strange behavior when he would meet people... that he didn't look people in the eyes, acted shy and "meek"... but I forget. That is what he was taught and trained to do for the first 5 years of his life. He was being respectful!
At least he doesn't kneel before people.
Cultures. Traditions. Customs.
