Issue 2 is available now on loremnotipsum.com. How do you interpret Peking opera for a Finnish audience? What is it like navigating a cross-cultural marriage in a remote town in southwestern Japan? Or working as a tour guide in Cairo? Delve into these stories, and many more, in our second issue. Issue Two — with 150+ pages of beautiful writing and images — explores how the world meets itself through a vibrant array of perspectives.

Perfect Strangers magazine is a publication dedicated to exploring the cross-cultural. We’re fascinated by one question — how does the world meet itself? From artists and entrepreneurs to grandparents and lovers, we feature people from all walks of life who help to connect the world. Through their perspectives, we look at how cultures and languages, habits and ideas, styles and foods, intertwine and transform. We hope you’ll immerse yourself in our beautifully printed pages, and that you’ll discover something interesting — even inspiring — about our interconnected world. Perfect Strangers magazine is published twice a year in San Francisco. We showcase a broad range of voices, and are always looking for more points of view.
