After trying to explain to an older female Korean teacher at my school how much I loved my dog, I finally used the example of the cow in India. “The dog is a sacred animal for many Americans,” I stated exasperated. She finally nodded quizzically, like a person observing a foreign custom.
Recently I had the good fortune to be selected by Anhui Television to be featured on a program called “Experience Anhui”. This program is shown on their international channel and its focus is about the lives of foreigners living and working in Anhui.
