Tea and Bannock

It's customary in the community to have tea and bannock at the ready for unexpected guests. Yesterday evening we had our first "official" uninvited guest. Afterward, Anouk and I had a good talk about if, when you move to a new community, you should or are expected to follow all the customs and practices of that community? At home (or "down south") neither of us would ever dream of stopping by someone's place unannounced, expecting to be served tea and food, and then staying for an indefinite period of time. We would feel too intrusive!...Not so up here. :)
