Cross-cultural confession & August’s slogan

What I would send in to PostSecret:
I actually like it when locals take pictures of me for being a foreigner, or when people take pictures of our foreigner friends, because it makes me feel less guilty/obnoxious when I take pictures of them.

Since such cross-cultural contrition makes us particularly conscious of our foreignness, I’ve chosen some English propaganda for this month. Not totally sure what to make of this…

…but this is the world we share. It says, “Perfect English, Perfect Job, Perfect Life.” We have some of the usual red bannered Chinese moral exhortations ready for next month.
