Today I asked everyone I met at my cash register, “Where are you from?” Here’s the list, in no particular order:
U.S.A – Washington D.C, Las Vegas, Pennsylvania, Utah, Wichita Kansas, Chicago, Austin Texas, Ohio, Connecticut, Boston, New York, Portland, Florida, Atlanta, and all over California
- England, and Scotland
- Europe: Italy, France, Germany, Spain, Holland
- Australia and New Zealand
- South Korea
When I asked a Russian man where he was from, he thought I wanted to see his I.D., so he showed me his passport. He came from Vladivostok. I’ve never met anyone from there before. It’s like meeting someone from Timbuktoo, or Lake Titicaca…
I looked it up. It’s in the far east of Russia: 4,000 miles from Moscow, 50 miles from N. Korea and a few miles to Japan.
