Social Interactions Abroad Like a Shot of Espresso for the Day

by Chase Chisholm, Greenheart Travel Teach Abroad Participant in South Korea

I kept it simple and ordered a Caffé Latte directly from the menu. As my drink was being made, another girl kept peeping at me from the kitchen area. I peeked right back at her with a grin. Then she hid. We played this game for a while, until my latte was ready.

These sorts of interactions are what I live for, and are the reason I travel so much. They’re like an added shot of espresso to my day, life. Such simple, practically non-verbal communication can help get past even profound language barriers. I can hardly wait to learn some Korean. Then I’d be able to order a triple-shot latte.
