24 differences between East and West

We came across the very cool series of infographics shown below on boredpanda.com a couple days ago.  It’s an old post, but very thought provoking nonetheless. The posters were designed by German artist Yang Liu as a means to convey the differences between German and Chinese people, although the comparison works for Americans and Chinese too. You can check out her website here.
