When cultures meet


Anyone who has been to a Far Eastern country can tell you that it's considered incredibly disgusting to blow your nose in public. Oddly enough it's not looked down upon to sneeze loudly with an open mouth or spit on the street in places like South Korea.

This is actually untrue, sneezing loudly is just as considered disgusting as blowing your nose in public. The expectation is that you would wear a mouth mask if prone to sneezing (sick, allergies, etc).

Hey, i would love to see more Poland in your comics! We have a mermaid and a dragon in our culture, which would be fun to see you take on that, or an easter tradition called smigus dyngus! I would love to see more poland.

Aaaaa also, the flag on South Korea's shirt is wrong in the last two panels.... XD the red is supposed to increase towards the left, the blue to the right and not the other way round.

Kind of a thing here in Iceland, too. Not as much of the spitting, but a hell of a lot of snorting, and not a lot of nose-blowing. Best case was when I was talking to this extremely well-dressed lady, with the sweetest nature. Totally thrown off guard when she started snorting.
