Imagine a man getting ready for a month-long trip traveling through India. He goes to his travel agent, where she books the trip for him, but expresses concern over him traveling there by himself, especially considering he’s done little to no research on the country. She provides him with maps and tour books, but recommends he get a guide—someone who can show him around, speak the language and understand the laws and customs.
