Biggest cultural differences between the U.S. and where you studied abroad: For the U.S. and Brazil, probably the biggest thing was the language barrier. Everyone spoke Portuguese, and almost no one spoke English. Also, they stay out all night every night in São Paulo specifically. Also, with race, it’s viewed differently there than the US. For example, if you’re darker than a certain skin tone, you’re black; it isn’t like here where we mean African-American, Caribbean, etc. South Africa, let’s see...so there we had two homestays. My first was with an Arabic Muslim family and then with one Black family. There are also a lot of language differences -- I was in Cape Town, and then we stayed in Johannesburg for a week. So the languages were different, and also the food was different in each homestay. And the levels of poverty, the contrasts, were so much more noticeable there than here. And they’re still so heavily segregated after apartheid. India was definitely the biggest culture shock: language and food. Also, I was in Ahmedabad, and just walking outside and seeing so many people riding motorcycles, animals in the streets, all the noise. And race there, well being black at least, was a shock to a lot of people. Whenever I went outside, people were always staring at me. People would ask to take pictures of me and stuff, and the segregation I saw there was based on religion, like Hinduism and Islam.
