[China] #51 Being an American in Suburban Guangxi w/ Hank
Play • 48 min

Hank and his wife Hayley live in the Denver area with their two dogs Gwen and Cody. Hank is a graduate student at Regis University and is pursuing dual licensure for counseling and marriage and family therapy. Hank spent a gap year abroad in China and had many fun experiences and interesting thoughts. He was shocked that there was no toilet paper in the public restrooms at first but also engaged himself with the locals while he was learning Mandarin.

📝Randon Takeaways

➡️ Don't write something off just because of the first interaction. 

➡️ You can demand people to treat you with respect when you mature.

➡️ Take the time to commute to think. 

➡️ Recommendation for those who are going to China: Try to limit communication with home and your native language. Soak yourself in the new culture. Eliminate the things that can ground you in your comfort zone.

➡️ Hank's favorite food: baozi 包子 and daoxiaomian 刀削麵 (shaved noodles).
