THIS WEEK Alison Maciejewski makes us think long and hard about food photos on social media, wanderlust articles that try to tackle culture and the linguistic barriers of the Internet. But the conversation is not all serious, we have some fun comparing emoji options on Line (in Thailand) and WeChat (in China), what and where “ugly delicious food” is, and how using teen dramas are a good way to learn the Thai language.
If you listen to the Expat Rewind Podcast (now Bookish Expats on the Geopat Podcast) you may remember Alison from earlier this season. We welcome her over to the Virtual (Expat) side of our projects and know you are going to appreciate her input on the pondering we do about our geographic and virtual selves in these conversations.
