Every time I’m asked to do an interview, it leaves me with a shiny, new feeling. InterNations is an website for people who live and work abroad. A place for future expats to learn and a place for existing expats to connect.
Here’s a quick sample of the interview from InterNations:
[quote] Tell us about the ways your new life in New Delhi differs from that back home. Did you have trouble getting used to the new circumstances? Did you experience culture shock?
Culture shock is something I thought I would never experience, since I was so self-educated about India’s culture – good and bad. But, I was wrong about that, too.
I experienced culture shock, not by seeing the homeless or begging people, not by living a simple life… But instead by the judgmental and vain nature that people have towards themselves and each other. I guess I expected to find spiritual enlightenment and higher consciousness – maybe understanding. I was a bit disappointed to learn that people care a lot about appearance, and many other things, and they don’t see very far past that. That was my culture shock. [/quote]
