Do You Know Your Neighbors?


Buzzy asks "Do You Know Your Neighbors?"

Comic description: Buzzy organizes a party where he and his neighbors go to four different neighboring houses. While there, they eat traditional food and learn about the cultural heritage of each of their neighbors. The comic ends with a friend telling Buzzy "It's good to learn about your neighbors and their different customs". Buzzy responds by saying "Yes, and the more you learn about them the better neighbors you can be!"
