We spent quite a bit of time during our first program session discussing what was/is culture. We discovered that culture is really an integral part of our everyday lives. Culture is reflected in the food that we eat, the clothes that we wear, the things that we do for fun as well as the artistic traditions and trends of anywhere people live, work and play.
