Being a foreigner in a city or country you’re not very much familiar with will surely prove to be a challenge. That is to say, you will not be familiar with their culture nor their way of doing things. No matter how much you read about a culture or place, you never quite learn it like you do when visiting it or experiencing it.
However, as time passes you’ll find yourself adjusting and adapting to what the place has to offer, and you’ll soon realize what you have to offer to a particular place.
Instagrammer, known by the name of Shuang (@nowhybecausechina), has been posting pictures of different things that happen in China on a daily basis. Basically, she has been posting things that have managed to capture her attention.
As BoredPanda reports, the famous Instagrammer tries to provide ‘cultural context for why things in China happen the way they do’, as well as explain some of the history, the culture, or the language.
As a general explanation for some of the choices below, the Instagrammer lists:
“Anything ‘profound’ is considered good. If you as an observer don’t find it profound…that’s your fault. The wearer is making a statement, and that’s what’s important.”
“If the actual piece of clothing is functional and comfortable, who cares what’s written on it.”
“The wearer doesn’t have to understand, because others most likely don’t understand…so who cares. Even vulgar, rude statements can be worn by kids… because no one knows any different.”
