It feels weird to be back – what’s with all this snow? Everyone speaks English! We’re all wearing big, puffy jackets and people actually listen to good music – well, some people… And there’s video game stores on every corner! Ah, it is good to be back…but it does feel strange. I got so used to Israel.
On my way here I got stuck in New York due to snow, so I got to go around Manhattan for a couple hours before coming back. I was so happy – I love New York and will likely be going to law school there in the fall. And so my return was not only to Canada but to North America in general – Mexico doesn’t count 😛 – and it was glorious. Here’s a mix to reflect my happiness at being back here, with all that is great and even not so great about this continent.
[Bit of a funny story: while I was in the army there were aspects of Israeli culture that really drove me nuts and I would sing “North American Scum” but change it to like, “Where the girls aren’t totally insane – back in NORTH A-MERICA! doo doo doo doo, do do do…” I had some Israeli friends who joined in on this also cuz they thought it was entertaining. Of course, none of them knew the actual song.]
