International Experience Grantee Shares China Thoughts. "I am for the first time in my life truly alone. Alone not just in the sense that I don't have anybody to rely and depend on, but in that I am in a country where I can barely communicate with anyone, and beyond that, I don't have a culture clue how to follow that old traveler's phrase: 'When in Rome, do what the Romans do.'
