You hear a lot about culture shock and it’s counterpart reverse culture shock, but I never expected to have trouble remembering to flush my toilet paper!

This past year has been a whirlwind of cultural experiences for me and now I’m back to “normal.” But normal isn’t quite so normal anymore!

When I was prepared to expect something different, it was never that shocking. What got me the most were the things that I never even imagined could be different. That’s when I realized what is truly ingraned in me by my culture–the things I never even considered could be done more than one way.
