Have you ever travelled somewhere as a tourist and wondered what it would be like to experience a traditional day living there like a local?
Perhaps you want to eat like the locals, as often the traditional foods offered to tourists are not the most “traditional”. It could be the fun stuff that you think you’re missing out on. So often tourists find themselves in places full of other tourists, doing the same activities as all the other tourists. You wonder where are the locals and what they are doing.
How do the locals get around? It’s hard to find out if you’re travelling a new land exclusively on tourist buses or in private taxis. What about the other essential elements of a traditional day for the locals, like where do they work and sleep?
Maybe you just want to compare the lifestyle of the locals to your own to see what connects and separates us. You may even be thinking of moving to another country and just want to know what a traditional day looks like in another part of the world.
