Holy cow, I wrote a book!
The wife of one of my relatives
grew up in Taiwan and attended college
in the United States.
When she went home to Taiwan for the holidays, she would tell
"If you need to get in touch while I'm away, you can send me email."
One of them asked her,
"You mean, you have computers in Taiwan?"
It's the home of
the world's third largest PC manufacturer
Dell and HP.)
One of her friends grew up in Japan.
When she moved to the United States at around age twelve
and was introduced to her new school,
her classmates were excited to hear about what it's like living in Japan.
One of them asked her, "Do you have
television in Japan?"
When I told this story, one of my colleagues added his own version:
"When I came to the USA from England, an 11-year-old asked me if
we had electricity there."
