Reflections on Travel in America

I’ve spent more time in the U.S. over the last few years than in the rest of my life. And today on Independence Day I decided to do a 2 minute brainstorm of things I almost always enjoy on each trip, even if most of my time is in meeting rooms. In random order…

  1. Hearing the range of accents.
  2. Watching people from California and New York try to communicate.
  3. Barbeque.
  4. Learning more about life as an African American.
  5. Trying not to say “about.”
  6. Seeing plants, birds and landscapes we don’t have in Canada.
  7. Hearing jazz or blues.
  8. Finding some new kind of hot sauce.
  9. Hearing Spanish spoken.
  10. Having assumptions about America shaken up in new ways.
