First Week in Guangzhou: Chinese and North American culture

After spending the first week here in Guangzhou, I realized that there is a very gap between Chinese and North American culture. In Canada, people take their time doing everything, enjoying the nature etc. but here everyone is always in such a hurry. They miss out on a lot of things around them.

One of the thing that is very different is when eating in food courts. Usually when we are done eating we empty the trays and stack them nicely on top of each other. However, in Guangzhou, we are suppose to just leave it in the table and someone will come and clean up the table once you leave. If you do try and clean it they will actually get mad at you!
