What type of questions did you have to answer the first time around?

When I think of cultures, I think of their habits, way of doing things, religious beliefs, etc. In ABQ it was common for the Navajo kids to be gone for a couple of weeks to a month because the parents went back to the reservation for family. Family first, school second. It frustrated teachers but it was how it was. People I dealt with that were Navajo would get 2 hours north of ABQ and then call and say I need a ride home I have to be in court tomorrow. They didn't plan ahead just carried on with what they needed/wanted to do and figured it out later by calling on others to help them out. Of course, you learn things by visiting tourist type places that explain their traditions (thinking pueblos).

I know, poor example, but that is the only thing I can think of in response to your question and I'm probably way off base. California is so diverse, but you know that.
