....I'm in Seattle. How refreshing. I feel in Canada already. I'm going to walk to the waterfront and then have some Thai food. How many times do I need to be reminded that I need to live by the ocean?????!!!!
Talking to the Punjabi taxi driver, I found out he has relatives close (very close) to where I used to live in England. All of a sudden I feel like the Midwest is some sort of untamed frontier, where civilization has not yet developed. I'd say Pleistocene at most. Populated by Neanderthals. I have a nasty feeling I'm mixing epochs as if I'm preparing some wonderful "sex on the beach" cocktail, but I don't care.
Oh, I did not even have to spell my name, these people apparently "get" it. And nobody asked me about my accent either! I don't stick out anymore!!!! I DON'T WANNA GO BACK.... :-(
