A friend of mine once said that culture shock was not caused by the difference between two or more cultures. But rather caused by our indifferent stance on other cultures. That are not ours by not willing to learn about them. While this statement might be a bit harsh for some, I think there is some bitter truths in it. I am not a sociologist or even a proper researcher in the first place. But I am going to share an observation that caught me off guard. Since it is quite different with my experience in Indonesia and Japan.
