East vs West

Public Places – China vs The West

Another new difference that I discovered between Australia and China is because there are such a few amount of people on the train platforms.

A Crowd Of One

When I crouched down and started to eat my avocado dip with carrots, I realized I am the only person standing on the platform. So when people walk past me, the natural inclination is to look down at me, and then I feel a bit introverted, because I am the only person there to be stared at.

Invisible In The Crowd

Whereas, when you are in China, there are 40 people around you, so you kind of feel like you are invisible in the flock of people.

So, even though 10-20 people are passing you, no one really looks at you, so you can do what you want.

That is the big difference.

Mixed Couples In The West

The train also has plenty of mixed couples.  Mixed couples are common here.
