Fresh

Living in suburban America makes us grow accustomed to certain things, like a two-car garage and a large lawn. And when a younger version of myself went to China for the first time, I felt like I had stepped into a world of a change. But I guess that holds true whenever you travel abroad (or even to just another state). There are always changes that we might not be so welcome to (such as bathrooms not having toilet paper), but then there are others that make us question our own lifestyle habits. My grandparents not having a large refrigerator confused me at first ("where do they put all their groceries every week?!"), but as I grew older and learned to appreciate fresh produce, it's definitely something I want to incorporate into my future life. Instead of a weekly trip to the grocery store, they buy all their groceries every morning at local markets and usually consume it that same day.
