Do you take your shoes off or leave them on when you enter someone’s home? This basket of slippers sits by our front door in the cooler months, just in case. In GM, there’s an interesting mix of cultures that makes this a point of conversation upon entry.

In the local culture, it’s tradition to leave your shoes on, however, the surrounding countries that have been invaders and occupiers typically remove their shoes. I’ve always wondered if that’s why they keep them on here. Either way, we’re prepared!
