      Culture shock

      One of the major challenges for organisers is to change the way the
      refugees think about cars. Many of the new arrivals suffered from lack of
      access - which they blamed on a lack of mobility - and came from places
      where cars were scarce.

      "I have been here just a few months and its very disorientating... How
      will I shop for dates to break my Ramadan fasting? And, where do I get
      halal goat meat?"

      Some want to make up for a lifetime in which they were denied cars. Others
      gravitate towards hybrid cars, believing they are a great source of
      vitamins...

      :-) So... any thoughts on how to adapt this programme?
