What do you like in Germany?
I like the trust between people over here. The longer I stay in Germany, the more naive I become, the more I trust people. Chinese economy is growing, but the trust between people is collapsing. Chinese distrust strangers. In China there is growing distrust between officials, police and residents, doctors and patients, customers and businesspeople. I feel overwhelmed by it every time I travel back to China. Everything there is too complicated for me or I am just too simple for that society.
What do you dislike in Germany?
I dislike the taste of German food, but at the same time I enjoy the feeling that I’m eating safe food. In China, because of the lack of food safety regulations, people don’t trust the local companies. The parents prefer ordering the milk powder for the babies from Europe. I know that the food over here is not 100 per cent safe, but it is much safer than in China.
Where is your home?
To be honest, I have never thought of defining what home is. My whole family is in China and often home is where the family is. I also spent 19 years in that country. But for me it is really hard to say where my home is. Can’t we have more than one home?
