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.
The author, Dr. Travis Sky Ingersoll, is a social work professor with a decade of experience providing anti-racist/anti-bigotry education. His academic publications include the textbook Sexuality Concepts for Social Workers, the Intimacy chapter in the book Healthy Ageing and Aged Care, and research publications examining the fear of intimacy, sexual anxiety, gender roles, and enhancing the well-being of older adults.
