Cultural differences - sights, sounds and smells...

The past few days I have been meaning to post about something that is a noticeable difference between our western cultures and the culture of Taiwan.

In Taiwan, it is completely culturally appropriate to pick one's nose, and flatulence and burping in public are not considered taboo. It is one thing I have yet to adjust to. It's bizarre to see old people just really into picking their nose as they walk down the street, or to have a student "pass gas" loudly in class and no one turns their head or laughs.

Oh Taiwan.. the sights, smells and sounds. ;0)
