With each day that passes, I'm learning more and more about Chinese culture and the daily life of those who live here. I am also becoming more aware of the similarities and differences that exist between our cultures. One thing that I have found to be very different here than in the United States is peoples driving demeanor. I personally never use my horn while driving my car, but in China it seems to be all the rage. It seems that where ever we travel, the beeping noise follows. Understanding the purpose of honking has been a quite a struggle for me. Sometimes drivers honk at cars and pedestrians, but on other occasions they seem to be beeping at nothing! I have found the driving to be humorous in some situations and overwhelming in others. I know one thing for sure; there is no way I would ever hop on the roads over here!
