  西方哪些事物在中国人看来很奇怪?

  获得30.8k好评的答案@Helen Qie

  Years ago I went to London and had a super wonderful trip there. I lived in one of the host families. Since it was my first time abroad, it was a bit of culture shock for me.

  几年前我去伦敦经历了一次超棒的旅行。我当时住在寄宿家庭里,鉴于这是我第一次出国,这次经历对我造成了不小的文化冲击。

  The tap water - Can’t believe that we can drink the water from the tap directly! In China there is no possibility for us to do that. Even when we need to wash some fruit or something we will use the purified water. Every family has at least one water purifier (mine have three). This is because the water pollution in our country is very serious. It cannot be denied.

  自来水——难以置信我们会直接喝水龙头流出来的水!在中国我们不可能那么做。就算我们要洗一些水果或是别的东西我们也会用纯净水。每个家庭至少有一台净水器(我们家有三台)。这是因为我们国家的水污染很严重。这是无法否认的。

  Shoeless - The children from my host hardly wore shoes even when they played in the yard. I tried but gave up. It hurts a lot!!!

  不穿鞋——接待家庭的孩子几乎不穿鞋,就算他们在院子里玩也不穿。我曾尝试过不穿鞋但是后来放弃了。太疼了!!!

  Friendly - When I hung out, there were a lot of strangers saying ‘Hi’ to me. And most of them said it in Chinese. So sweet! In China, when we see foreigners, most of us feel shy to say ‘Hello’. But for once, I said ‘Hi’ to a foreigner at Starbucks and she smiled back at me. Not that weird actually.

  亲切友好——我出门的时候,有很多陌生人会向我打招呼,而且大部分人都是用中文说。太贴心了!在中国,在看到陌生人时,我们大部分人会觉得害羞,不敢打招呼。不过有一次,我在星巴克跟一个外国人说了声“嗨”,她回了我一个微笑。实际上那感觉还不错。

  Weird Chinese on clothes - Sometimes I saw the people wearing Tees with strange Chinese on them. I don’t know whether they knew the meaning or not...

  衣服上的奇怪汉字——有时候我看见有人穿印着奇怪中文的T恤,我不懂他们到底知不知道上面的意思……

  Actually I think the feeling that we have is same as that of western people when they see weird letters on our clothes. :D

  其实我想这种感觉就像西方人看到我们衣服上印有奇怪字母时的一样。:D

  I would like to talk about North America and Europe.

  我想说些有关北美和欧洲的事。

  Why do you guys love cold & ice water so much?

  为什么你们这么喜欢冷水和冰水?

  OMG, you can directly drink the tap water ?!

  我的天,你们会直接喝自来水?!

  Prefer to take bath in the morning rather than at night?

  比起晚上,更喜欢在早上洗澡?

  Western women can recover so fast after giving birth. Most Chinese women have to stay at home for at least one month.

  西方女性产后恢复如此之快,而大部分中国女性必须要在家休息至少一个月。
