Culture Shock Contest

The main characters in Hunting Cockroaches are immigrants from late Communist Poland to early Reaganite New York City.  Their sense of displacement -- the gulf between the life they know and the one they're living -- fuels both the humour and the pathos of the play.

We're asking the members of our community to share their own stories of displacement.  What's the further from "home" (however construed) that you've ever lived?  How did you prepare yourself, and what did you find that you weren't prepared for?  How did your expectations lead you astray?
