CULTURE SHOCK IN A RAINBOW OF COLORS.
During the years 2000 and 2001, I had the unique opportunity to participate
in the fifth and sixth editions of the Canada-World-Youth-MINED (Cuban Ministry of
Education) Program as a supervisor of two groups (one each year) of eighteen
participants (nine from each country). This article is a result of the the impact I
personally received from having been suddenly transplanted abroad and having
been another victim of all the confusion caused by the “disease” of culture shock.
