Cultural Fatigue when Living Abroad is Not Paradise

Explanation of cultural fatigue by Andy Lee Graham, a seasoned traveler for over 14 years.


Good one, Andy! I've used the words "culture shock" before, but hearing your perspective on "cultural fatigue" has given me some new insights. Thanks!


Shock is normally a week or two, but fatigue is the daily grind. What is a no-brainer, like walking on the sidwalk, like standing in line, become something that requires thought. Fatigue causes frustration anger, not a good type of anger.
