"The people here are just thinking quite differently than where we come from; particularly the young ones. An 18 year old cousin of Mary's is living here at the house too, and is often visited by a rather nice boy-friend as well. The totally automatic assumption is that life is about "Having a good time". If they were to realize that for me this looks a little differently, they would think I am crazy, or not telling the truth."
