I don't think I'll be able to toss aside my own custom. It's true that we need to adjust ourselves to the new place but doesn't mean I have to toss aside what I have been taught all the way I grow up. I still respect the customs of the place but my custom is what made me, it's natural to follow it even in a different place.

I personally think if you move to a new country you are the outsider and need to fit in. I think that you should have respect for that countries laws and custom's first and foremost tho practice your own customs in the privacy of your home. I also think you should learn the language as I think it is abit ignorant for people who come to a new country and dont know a word of the local language. If I moved to say india or china or where ever I would expect my life style and eating habits to change to fit in with that country I would also learn the language as its respecting the country you want to be part of.
