Culture Shock

Hey all, I returned to Onterrible just a few days, and man oh man, things have been pretty weird for me. Things back in Canada are so different than what I have gotten used to in China. I know that I wasn't gone for that long, but I still have a few questions to ask...

Has everything always been so expensive?
Has the air always been so clean?
Have people always spoken English so freaking fast?
Have Canadians always apologized so bloody much?
Has tap water always been drinkable?
Has outside always smelled so good? (as opposed to pollution and urine)
Has it always been so easy to walk around without a pack on your bag?
Have I always been so glad to be home?

Anyway, I don't know the answers to all of these questions but I look forward to finding them out in the coming months...

Until next time,

G

Yeah I agree to you, the air especially in Beijng, is dirty and hazy. So not a few get sore of conjunctiva. But the air in Hongkong, I recognized is little different ... its more a kind of a smell of various cookout restaurants - its extraordinary for Europeans and Americans too. I loved it reminding me of the Culture Shock.
