American traveller seeks advice
You go out there and just plan on enjoying and having maximum fun.
Take whatever you are taking (just protect it and don't display it much). The locals will take you for who you are not what
your country stands for and especially in Kenya. You will have mega fun. I would
only advice that you make your travel arrangements with a reputable company (Block Hotels, Windsor Golf resort, any hotels in Nyali
Beach). Don't go showing the dollar around ( that goes for anywhere) But my God just have fun.
Contact the hotels directly and they will give you a guide to who you should make your
bookings with. (MUST BE REPUTABLENOT SOME ONLINE CHEAP DEALS). I would
surely hate for you to get any surprises when you get out there.
Have loads of fun especially in Kenya.

I'm an American, I am going to be doing some world travel, entailing a
combination of education and business. Some of my travels may include
at least some brief time in a variety of African nations (both north
and south of the Sahara). Can someone give me some advice on the most
blatant ways that Americans sometimes fail to appreciate the cultures
in various African nations, in thought or deed, and how I might best
avoid making an idiot of myself? Contexts of interest include not
just business and school settings, but social settings, restaurants,
shopping places, even visits to people's homes -- hell, even the
dating scene, one never knows -- really anything you can think of.
It's kind of a broad, open question, I realize, but since I'm not sure
what exactly I'm looking for, I thought an open-ended question would
be best. All replies much appreciated.
