One of my favourite things about traveling is observing how things, people and culture are different compared to where I come from.
Here are a few of my observances that I thought I’d share.
There is a far more environmental approach to toilet training in China. In fact, babies don’t need diapers at all you just lift them in a squat position wherever you are, whether it’s the sidewalk, gutter, flower-pot. It doesn’t really matter just as long as the job gets done.
When you’re hot just roll up your shirt for a quick cool down. The bonus, as far as I can tell, is that you can pretty much do it anywhere!
It’s perfectly fine to wear your pj’s to the park for an evening stroll. I could so adopt this idea at home. This is even better than Lululemon! It’s the ultimate ‘chillaxin’ outfit for the park. Sorry no pictures ;-(
If your feeling a little tired. Why not take a nap? Just about anywhere will do just fine.
When you don’t feel like doing the dishes, no problem! A quick solution: Add a plastic bag liner in your bowl for easy cleanup!
The lines on the road are purely for decoration as far as I can tell. Traffic is insane and I’m still trying to figure out if pedestrians have any rights. Drivers will pass on the shoulder, they’ll pass on blind corners while chatting on their phones and smoking their cigarette. It’s a crazy system.
When you’re hungry, feel free to squat and eat pretty much anywhere. There are mini tables and chairs that line most roads and offer a quick bite with friends.
Looks like it may have started to rub off on me?
