I learned a lot about the people and how much different the cultures can be, but how similar we can be as humans. Yes their culture was different from ours and a lot of what they did was weird to see and experience, but at the end of the day we all slowly realized that we're more or less the same people with different traits and habits.
The drawing we had to do throughout the trip made me feel really rewarded when i got to see how much of a sketchbook i eventually filled up in three weeks time and how much better the drawings got as the trip went on.
