Abstract:We, as articulate beings, are fond of telling stories. We have a strong oral tradition and are interested in listening to and narrating stories. Throughout our lives, all of us whether we are teachers, students, researchers, doctors, patients, are engaged in the activity of storytelling in an attempt to give meaning to our own experiences and to understand the behaviour of others. This paper is based on my personal experiences during my doctoral research. The story begins when I was searching for a topic for my research. After describing the study, its significance and a detailed account of the demographic information of the research sites, I narrate my experience of visiting the research sites and interacting with my research participants in order to paint an accurate and vivid picture of the whole process of conducting ethnographic research.
