Guide to the Otherworld/Return

Pack little. Travel light.
Don’t believe everything you’re told.
Don’t stay in places which look to you like home.
Observe local mores; respect local ways.
Talk less than you listen.
Try to see as well as sightsee.
If in doubt, smile.
Don’t stay aloof, but don’t try to go native either.
Don’t join in the dancing unless you’re sure you know the steps.

[S. Sunderland, Soul Avatars, p. 255]
