Hello this is Zhu.
I write about my travel journeys around the world. It often entails various cultures, subcultures, and historical recants. Many people know me by my work on the Middle East.
I had the privilege to have lived and travelled to many different countries at a relatively young age. As I travelled more, I realised how the world’s socio-economic system shaped our fortune and misfortune, thus perpetuating the glorification of certain cultures and neglect or demonisation of some others. If my contents galvanise you to travel for a cause, it is an extra piece.
I am an economic professional in my days. My professional pieces can be found on zhuoruifu.com. I am also a dog and cat mum. Books, sports, nature, languages, and people I love soothe me. I am Eastern born, Western educated, and now based in the Middle East.
