When I was first told about reverse culture shock I naively thought I would be immune because I ‘ve traveled so much before. But here I am back in the UK missing using a squat toilet and eating rice 3 times a day. Maybe it’s because for the first time I was based in the same place for an extensive amount of time and became completely immersed in the culture and felt fully at home.
Too try and break out of my culture shock I headed to my hometown of Brighton with my Olympus MJU and a roll of Agfa 35mm film. As a camera it can be temperamental as it has no manual features whatsoever but for a day of wandering and photographing it was perfect.
