I got to learn a lot about Scottish history and culture, both via the bagpipes course that I took and a highland tour that I went on. The tour guide told us many fascinating things about Scotland, such as the differences in cultures of the Highlands and Lowlands. Overall, this exchange experience was very valuable to me, as I got to learn more about the culture of my country’s ex-colonizers, and in the process saw how Singapore and Hong Kong were influenced by them, for good or better. I myself have been enriched by the people I met and the places that I saw, and am very thankful for the opportunity.
