Eventually, both Christine and Bertrand learn to work together despite their differences. Bertrand learns that his role as a man is different in the mission and that he must work with Christine. At the same time, Christine gets accustomed to her role as the leader of the team. Sometimes the two spend their lunch time together and share stories about their lives at home or talk about their daily work. Yet, most of the time, Bertrand feels more comfortable meeting his local colleagues while Christine enjoys spending time with international staff. Both start expanding their networks, meeting others, and integrating into groups. Every now and then they come together for a social dinner at which one of them cooks his or her national dish.
