Cultural and linguistic diversity is very interesting. The melting-pot of different cultures and languages in the world defines the genius ways that humans came up with to express their thoughts and identities. These differences become staggering when one travels to different places. You get to understand that the way you live is not the only way and that there are countless other ways worth exploring. There are some people who are ready to melt into a new culture and there are others who find it very difficult to assimilate into any other culture different from their own.
Itchy Feet Comic, by artist Malachi Ray Rempen, draws on these language and cultural differences to give you unique cultural differences. It summarizes the life of an ex-pat in hilariously put comics. Here are 30 of them for you to laugh at. Please let us know what you think.
Traveling is an eye-opener. After all, that’s what learning another language is for. You learn the ways other people of different cultures express themselves. When you interact with people from different cultures, you realize there is a world of difference between your culture and theirs. Some stuff that seemed inappropriate in your culture is not inappropriate anymore and vice versa. You also learn that any human being can fit into any culture if they allow themselves to accept new ideals and standards. Also, you get to learn that people from different cultural backgrounds can coexist in the same place given they believe in the higher purposes of love, solidarity, and inclusion.
