Culture shock - maryhalloran - 秋春粉墨
 
This is proof that I've changed.

A typical American may be wondering why I'm posting a picture of a shopping cart full of groceries.

Everyone else in Asia would say :

WHAT IS THAT

That's exactly what I thought when I first laid eyed upon this sight.  Only in America would you see people filling their shopping carts to the brim with canned good and boxes full of preserved goods.  The amount of food an average American family buys and stores is appalling.  In China (and most of Japan), they go to the store every two days and buy JUST ENOUGH to make breakfast, lunch and dinner for the next three days.

I remember when seeing something like this was COMPLETELY normal and there was nothing even slightly strange or overwhelming about it.  I guess living in a foreign country does change you.

Even a little thing like a basket of groceries can speak volumes about a country's culture.

Anyway, it's Saturday and I still have to work (WHAT!?!) so I'm off for another day at the office...
