Joe Lipsey III GIEU Reflection 9 As soon as I stepped foot in my host family’s home I began to think about their customs and values. Before I arrived in China, however, I thought about the culture of the culture as a whole and how I would adapt to it and feel about it. Walking through the house made me think about my own home and where I live on campus at school. What would my room look like? What would the bathroom look like, what kind of food would we eat for breakfast? Does my host family know much about western culture? All of these questions and more ran through my mind and they all began to be answered quickly and we took a tour around the house. During the two weeks I stayed with my host family I started to notice differences and similarities between myself and my host brother and ultimately his culture. For example clothes are not as big of a necessity there as it is in America. When I say this what I mean is there is not much emphasis or importance placed on having new clothes.
