From temperature to language … Culture shock in St. Lucia

One of the culture shocks a Spanish people would experience when they have arrived into my country is the temperature. My country is a very tropical country which experiences only two kinds of weather cycles – wet and dry. Most of the time is sunny and bright with very high temperature.

Another shock would be that St. Lucians are not touchy people and one may take offense if they are touch when spoken to. St. Lucians tend to swear openly in public especially insult person on their mothers and fathers. A Spanish people may feel intimidated walking near ghettos with guys smoking and drinking. In addition the use of our French-Creole language may confuse them a bit and they would need someone to translate.
