Cultural Confusion

Write about an experience you had when you felt culturally confused (when a situation felt confusing because of language or culture). When was the last time you felt out-of-place, disoriented, or surprised in a new cultural situation? The experience could have taken place in the United States, or in Asia, or even in Southern Patagonia.

Describe details please! Go in depth and discuss what you learned from cultural confusion. Entries should be between 500-1500 words. The winners will be published on this blog!
