Description

Chris Benjamin signed up for a volunteer work exchange program looking for an adventure. What he hadn’t bargained for was a life lesson and an eye-opening experience of cultural difference. Chris expected his exchange partner to experience culture shock but the St. Lucian native settled in without difficulty. It wasn’t until Chris arrived in St. Lucia and began spending time with Ben’s family — in particular uncle Dingo — that Chris realized sometimes social differences snuck up on you in the most unexpected ways.
