    Don't talk about politics with...

    by sandravdp Updated Sep 7, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Don't talk about politics with any locals. If they ask you what you thing about it just say I don't know. Opinions about politics here can easily lead to arguements. Furthermore most people show great hospitality and are rather friendly -this is not always the case in big cities though-. Final tip: show respect for different religions by the way your dress / taking shoes off at mosques etc.
