I was working for a French company at the time of the NY visit, we had a breakfast meeting in a hotel in the basement restaurant (no windows) and some senior guy gave a very long and boring presentation in French language; very Kafkaesque
I got somewhat brain washed and ordered my breakfast in French language which confused the waiters.
Lol, what a story. It's like in one of my dreams when I start speaking in a weird language for that specific place and surprisingly, people understand me but are still outraged because it is the wrong language. Surrealist.

Relocation was never really a choice - an inevitable life happening when one has the “misfortune” to meet the wrong person who is too right and both are pursuing studies etc. Nearly 30 years, a few offspring later and 15 moves...life is never dull.
Sounds like proper life! Moving around is a good way to learn and harvest important and useful data, I bet you would not trade.

New Yorkers travel. Probably the most out of all Americans, wouldn't you think?

If the TT tragedy happened in another giant city, I wonder if it took folks longer to bounce back. "The Incredibly Loud and Extremely Close" is a great book, I covered it with few classes for a couple of years. I could not read anything else by him for a while worried he'd not be as good.

Re: New York in 1998

I fly there once a month or so. I keep telling myself, "greatest city on earth" every time I hit a spine fracturing pothole...
