pesachim 51

follow local customs

or follow the cabbage leaves, and the person who has their own way and traditions.

(the prohibition of not working on eve of Pesach is determined by local custom. when travelling from place to place, should follow the strictness of both opinions. there is a principle that if a place prohibits something that other places permit, cannot just ignore local custom and permit. this is contrasted with stories of Rabbis who have different traditions and interpretations, and who has the authority to do things differently)
