Perbincangan Culture Shock di Amerika

  Beberapa minggu lalu, saya ketemu Pak Marpu di pesantrennya. Pak Marpu adalah guru pertama yang ngajarin saya Fikih sewaktu kelas satu MTs dulu. Salah satu yang kita obrolin waktu ketemu itu adalah soal bagaimana saya melihat sekaligus menyikapi Amerika yang dulu saya ekspektasikan, dengan Amerika yang saat ini saya alami. Tentu saja ada gap di antara keduanya, sesiap apapun mental dan fisik kita menghadapi kehidupan Amerika yang sudah sedikit banyak bisa diketahui dari media. Saya kaget bahwa di DC orang bisa ngeganja dengan bebas. Orang ngelinting di bis, di kereta, atau di taman adalah hal yang sering saya temui. Di New York, perempuan bisa bebas bertelanjang dada, juga berjemur di rerumputan Central Park hanya dengan  two piece  layaknya di pantai. Sajian  wine  di acara resmi, orang ke klub seks, orang tidak beragama, orang menikah sesama jenis, adalah list  culture shock  yang sebenarnya tidak perlu dikagetkan lagi kalo bicara Amerika, toh hal-hal itu sudah banyak ternarasikan

I have a big interest and passion in foreign languages, cultures and its people. My curiosity with the local cultures and languages of the local people also arise as we met them in the street or stopped by in a recreational place or tourist sites, for example. And so I had a dream that one day in the future I would get to know with them, learn their language, observe their customs and traditions, and things alike. I thought it would not just be an exciting experience but also something that would broaden my mindset and understanding towards different characters, various types of people. And it will always be a lifelong learning as what I have always discovered until now.

Things like how to interact with different kinds of people in many situational contexts, how to communicate with ease with them, how to eliminate prejudices because of cultural barriers, also how to build a long-term relationship for professional purpose and for international, borderless friendship too. I think it’s also a good thing if you have something in which you are skillful, and you share it with other people to enrich what you already have in yourself.
