Crossing Cultures #09: Kenneth from Hong Kong
In the podcast ‘Crossing Cultures’, host Sebas van Aert enters into conversation with people from other countries and cultures in an attempt to raise cultural (self-)awareness. This episode: Kenneth from Hong Kong.
In episode 9, Sebas has Kenneth from Hong Kong visiting him. They talk about what it’s like to go from a food paradise to a country with hardly any food culture. They look at the legacy the British have left in Hong Kong, why 1 July 2047 is a very important day for Hongkongers and why there have been so many protests in Hong Kong in recent years.
Finally, they ask themselves where the classic stereotype of the mathematically intelligent Asian comes from and to what extent it is correct. And did you know that in a way, Hongkongers are the Germans of Asia?
