Thank your host for everything, even the most seemingly trivial thing. Appreciate every simple offering. Bring lightness and an interest in everyone else to the table. Order a round, only one round is required, of drinks for your hosts and their children and the friends of their children, because they've welcomed, fed and housed you, stranger, and your children, all strangers. Remember the names of your hosts and use them often. In the naming is a certain grace. The traveler walks not only from this mountain to that castle, but along syllabled bridges between cultures.
