Exchange student acclimating to small town Oklahoma

By Caleb Brabham
 
Brazilian exchange student, Fernanda Araujo says there is a lot to get used to in Bristow, Okla., from the town's size, to the lack of public transportation. But Araujo says that there are few things more different between her culture and the American culture than the simple act of saying 'hi.' “One thing that is really different in Brazil is when you say 'hi', you need to give the other person a kiss on the cheek,” said Araujo. “So, my first week I said hi to everybody with a kiss. My host sister told me, 'we don't do that here.' I said, 'oh yeah, I forgot about that.' In the beginning I didn't know what to do when I met people. For me it's not nice just to say 'hi.' It's a little cold. But that doesn't mean the people are cold.”
