I was fortunate to participate in the Global Buyers Mission a couple weeks ago. Groups from Taiwan, Japan, Korea and many others came to see what forestry/wood building products we are making/creating.
I was hosting the tour at a lovely laneway house which garnered plenty of interest. They were amazed we dared to build with so much wood in a landscape of forest and bugs!
The wonderful people Imet from Korea and Taiwan came bearing gifts and It reminded me that in their culture that is very typical. I lived in Manila for 7 years and started to recognize different cultural traits when I was there.
But what about Canadians? Whats our " culture"?
I have heard some people say its the culture of " sorry"
as in... "sorry" you go first when merging,
" sorry" i took your spot in line
and maybe soon to be ...
"sorry" i overcharged you on the price of my home....
