Wanted to give a shout out to the wonderful YouTube channel “Dating Beyond Borders” , which brings to life, in its short and funny video skits, the many hurdles that multi-cultural couples have to deal with. And that, of course, is in addition to the difficulties that all couples, regardless of their culture of origin, have to face.
I was browsing a book about writers at my local bookstore this weekend (“Writers:Their Lives and Works“, by DK), when it became painfully obvious to me that almost all of the 100+ writers featured in that book (except for maybe two) wrote and lived in the same country they were born in. Moreover, each writer, next to his name and date of birth/death had his nationality written (see above) – Japanese, French, Italian, American, etc). The two exceptions were “Canadian born American” and “Czech born French”.
