Like an Egg in a Bowl of Cherries
A Year of Adventures, SARS, Wet-Markets, and Profound Realizations While Teaching in China
Like an Egg in a Bowl of Cherries is partly a travel memoir, and partly
an illustration of the transformative power that culturally immersive
experiences can have on expanding cultural humility and facilitating
healthy identity development. Drawing from hand-written journal entries
and emails sent home while living and working for a year in Dalian,
China (2002-2003), readers are taken on an entertaining ride filled with
humor, sarcasm, and irreverence. With topics ranging from the
challenges and rewards of teaching in China, to dog restaurants,
wet-markets, and the SARS Pandemic, the stories within this book will
expose readers to a world of interconnections, surprising parallels,
contrasts, similarities, and at times, profound realizations.
