The Betelnut Equation

One of the more interesting things about going to live abroad isn't the weird and wonderful culture you go to live in, but the weird and wonderful ways you react to that culture.

She often tells herself that being an old woman suites her and this is what her appearance becomes as a result if her own will. While I give this book 5 stars, it's closer to 4. book The Betelnut Equation Pdf. Considering the time at which it was written, and the affection the author had for his subject, this may be excused. I like the "middle east" section the best. I hoped an illustrated version would be good for a child, but I returned it on first inspection. Never knew these would be his favorite gifts. Thank you to all of the participants for sharing their stories. Chloe could have been an interesting character, and it was good to hear about the world from her perspective. The style is somewhat different and very intriguing as the Munson's weave the ancestor's story within Eva's story. Nothing is black-and-white. 164) Or, ‘why can’t we just all get along.

“I bought this e-book on a whim because I had heard of the author's blog and well, it's three bucks. As someone who lives in Taiwan, a lot of what Chapman writes rings true. My own experience has given me a different attitude towards Taiwanese but he ...”

a daily basis, or how you it will change you as a person now you are the ethnic minority. Thus, amongst other things (and it really is amongst other things as you can't describe the process of being an ethnic minority without also covering the culture), The Betelnut Equation is a warts and all look at the the ways mostly young Westerners cope when suddenly the normal rules of where they fit in don't apply.This is not a guidebook in any of the normal senses. It is not a factual account of where to go; nor is it just a running commentary on how I feel when running into various colorful circumstances, it has more in common with a novel; attempting to leave you with a deep understanding of a place through the lives of certain characters and the issues that affect their lives.I was inspired to write this by a younger who friend told me he learned more about dealing with Taiwanese from the stories of the Taiwan old hands than any guidebook. After hearing a story or discussing a situation with me, he would say how relieved or glad he was to know that he wasn't alone with some feeling he was having; that he could now deal with it better because he knew it wasn't just him. That proved as inspiration for this book: insights, reflections and observations on life for a foreigner in Taiwan through a number of short stories, articles and tales, almost all based on real events.I won't lie. Some of this content is already available as a blog with the name above. The blog has a loyal readership; won several best blog awards and is a recommended top blog from Expat Focus and Go! Overseas. In short, many people agree with my friend and view the content as invaluable inside knowledge to smooth their stay in Taiwan – or just great entertainment.For kindle I have reformatted, reorganized, rewritten and added content. Ideas and understanding of the situation are continually evolving and improving so I have gone back and reviewed all my posts so points are made clearer and quicker - and connections that I previously hadn't noticed are drawn.My passion and mission was to deliver some real and extremely relevant insight into the culture of Taiwan in an entertaining style. Hopefully, arm anyone coming with knowledge I didn't have. I look forward to hearing whether I have achieved that aim – And will of course work hard to answer any of your questions.
