"Reverse Culture Shock" or Why I'm a Foreigner in Canada

I have been in Switzerland for ten years. I’m not allowed to be Swiss yet, but am I still 100 percent Canadian? Traveling to my country shows that some things have become foreign to me there.

I have changed. Canada has changed.

My aunt introduced me to her friends as “his niece from Switzerland”. They were impressed by my good English.

Also, to celebrate the tenth anniversary, I baked myself a cake and carefully decorated it with love, and everyone thought the icing looked like ketchup.

Then I learned that my first two years in Switzerland did not count for naturalization. So please write me a comment how beautiful the cake looks.

Or tell about your reverse culture shock.
