Write about something familiar from the point of view of a stranger- a foreigner, a time traveler from the past, a prisoner release after 20 years in jail, an orphan. Pick a situation that might seem commonplace to your readers and imagine how the stranger would perceive it through all available senses.
Avoid using familiar words, you might even try not to name the situation, but let your reader figure out where the character is through your use of sensory details.
