What I learned last year:
No one is more attached to their phones than Singaporeans.
Car-washing with a DJ is a Sunday afternoon activity in Johannesburg.
It is always OK to add beans and corn to your shaved ice desert.
Staying with one kind of drink for the whole night does not prevent a hangover.
Money can’t buy you happiness but a walk in the forest can.
More sleeping does not make me less tiered.
If they are your friends, it doesn’t matter where you live. You can always hang out.
This summer no one yelled at me in Berlin which makes me think the indigenous are dying out.
