    I’ve lived in seven countries over 22 years and loved it all. BY FAR the weirdest country I’ve ever moved to was ... back to the US between some of these moves. Moving abroad, everything was new and we adapted ourselves to the new locales with our ingrained Yankee cultures. But moving BACK to the CONUS meant moving (military) to a part of the US we’d never lived in before and all that entails — and go away for two weeks, return to the States, and it seems foreign again - the US changes in large and in subtle ways every 24 minutes to 24 hours. Very weird place. Best place to live: Amman, Jordan. The people were incredible. And: I never fit in at family reunions — nobody’s curious about West Berlin before “die Berliner Mauer” came down or life in the South Pacific. But “oh those Red Sox...” can go on for an entire afternoon. Fascinating to me that THAT can happen too.
