Chinese-Spanish culture shock

Una laowai en Shanghai describes the relationship between Elisa, a Barcelona-born fashion consultant and the illustrator of this comic, and Esme, her interpreter, in the massive and savage city of Shanghai. Esme is a native of China and accompanies Elisa on her business trips that occur once a month. Elisa is the laowai, the foreigner, and will always be, no matter how many times she has been to China. Thus, both establish a relationship of many volleys back-and-forth, with the recurring culture shocks and existential doubts.
