When thinking of other places and people we tend to collectively categorize people based on their origins and appearances. We also tend to think that they have totally different lifestyles than we do because they don’t believe in the same gods or have the same celebrities and entertainment.
After my trip to Thailand and Vietnam, I could see that that way of thinking is wrong. We are people first and when you realize that you are able to see that our cultures are more synonymous than one thinks. The culture of going out with your friends, dancing to club music, exploring nature, it’s all the same as us who enjoy those things in the U.S.
