Hello, my name is Brooke Cadlane and thank you for stopping by my blog. I created this blog as an online diary and place to exchange culture. The name how to fold a shirt comes from a personal story of a petty argument I had with a friend about “how to fold a shirt” that digressed into a deep philosophical discussion about culture. I am writer, traveller, and wanderer. Cultural anthropology is my educational background and trade. After a career in academia I decided to travel and experience as many subcultures as I could first hand. I am currently working on a book and maintain this blog to share thoughts, experiences, and information from my journey.
