Culture

Last Wednesday, we had a big annual event on campus called “International Bazaar” which is like a cultural carnival. We had so many different foods, dress, and toys from different countries, such as Taiwan, Japan, Peru, Saudi Arabic, Mexico, and Iraq.

In this event, all the international students had their own country’s table to show the culture, food, holiday, dress, and other thing from their country. My friends and I took care of our Taiwanese table. We put Taiwan’s flag, map, and also made a slide show to present Taiwan to visitors. Also, we put some Taiwanese snakes and traditional tea on our table. Also, I wore a traditional dress to let every one know our dress culture.

My friends and I also tried many traditional foods from different countries, such as Thai-food, Mexican food, Indian food, Vietnamese food, and Japanese food. Also, we saw some cultural dancing, like Peruvian and African dancing, which impressed me.

I really like this event because not only did I try many different yummy cultural foods, but also I’ve learned more knowledge about other countries from international students. Even though all the cultural food, dancing, and dress are different from mine, I respect their cultures a lot, because they’re worthy to respect. It was a such meaningful international event I attended at Fontbonne.
