You know, something interesting happens when you travel abroad -- particularly
if you listen. You find out, for the most part, that people are people, with the
same hopes, and dreams and aspirations... as "us". They fall in love, they marry,
they get divorced, they succeed, they fail, they laugh and cry... same as us. They get up in the morning and go to work, make money, pay bills, like their
jobs, hate their jobs... same as us. I flew thousands of miles to Brisbane, Australia, saw
the same stores (except Walmart), some of the same shows, they ate the same foods, the same
cereals (plus some), their gas prices are high just like ours, they read the same magazine titles, and they even
speak the same language...more or less... just like us. So the topic of today's Ramblings should be understandable to them... just like us.
