Bonjour tout le monde,
I have a question, that I've been hesitant to verbalize with many people, although I feel like this is a seemingly appropriate platform.
I'm about to go work in Botswana (and visits to other places), and as you can see: I have dreadlocks, and I am white.
Where I am now (Canada), I have gotten a fair amount of comments from darker people who believe that I am in the wrong, wearing my hair in this fashion. That being said, I have had some comments in the 'good for you' realm. I also know that everyone is different, and that no one can say what every individual reaction is, but just if someone has experience with this.
Does anybody have any experience with what I should expect as a reaction to a white person with dreadlocks in Africa?
