Stranger in a Strange Land
I have an idea - I have lived in the southwestern U.S. for 13 years and I still don't feel like I live here. I thought it would be interesting to do a blog where I write about being an American in an American city but looking at it as a cultural outsider. When we lived in London, we did more to enjoy and explore the area than any of our English friends. We had a fresh perspective that came from being outside of the groove. Maybe if I tried to have the same approach here it would seem more novel and rewarding as opposed to seeming just lost.
