Los Angeles may not appear to be the best location for a few things and reasons, namely because the unemployment rate is in the double digits at 12% and as a result foreclosure rates put the city at the top of the national list.

Know the Culture – Do some checking on the Internet or at your public library for information on your destination. Learn about the people and different cultures, laws, and regulations that they have. Some customs in the United States might not be understood in another country. Keep in Contact – Always let your family know where you are.

In addition to your itinerary, leave them copies of your passport, visas, and birth certificate, in case you lose yours, or in case you disappear.
