This week that has certainly been the case for me. In part this is because many of the people I have met have never left the neighbourhoods they grew up in. I have been thinking a lot about what it would be like if I had never left Esquimalt. How would I be different than I am now? What would I have been doing there over the last 10 years? What if all of my friends had also only ever lived in Esquimalt and never expected to leave? What would it be like if someone from the other side of the world suddenly showed up?
I am trying to see myself more from the perspective of my hosts... I think some of them think I am crazy to have left my home, partner and job... maybe some of the readers of my blog think that too!! But anyway, I am learning so much all the time. It is almost painful really.
