Visit a museum that focuses on cultural history, preferably the history of a certain cultural group, and spend at least an hour observing the exhibits and listening to the guide (if one is available).

What were the positive outcomes of the conflict? What lingering scars do people carry with them from the experience?

Reflect on how much this experience stretched your comfort zone and how this observation could affect your intercultural communication.
