Vlog: Bring more potatoes to China

What type of potato he wanted to eat? A potato is a potato, right? That is what Derek thought before he came to Wageningen. Now he knows better.

Back in China, Derek misses the diversity of potatoes. In this vlog, he takes us to a Carrefour Hypermarketr in China to show how limited the supply of potatoes is. He also gives us a view in the Chinese kitchen. And he has a question: can anyone please send more potatoes to China?

Derek studied at Wageningen University for two years, was a member of the Student Council for one year and looked for a 'knowledge migrant job' in the Netherlands for another year. He felt at home here. In 2014 he moved back to China, his country of birth, where he had a reverse culture shock. He now lives and works in Shanghai. Derek feels a bit in between two cultures since he soaked up the Dutch lifestyle. The title of his vlogs is therefore: Pan in Neitherland.
