The world is so much smaller than it used to be:


In one 24-hour period I woke up in my small French-speaking village; went to an international airport and had more typically French fare for breakfast; flew an hour into the middle, flat part of Germany; had “Butterbrötchen” a sandwich, for lunch followed by another under-an-hour flight to a port city where I proceeded to enjoy the local beer offerings.
Dinner was in an Iranian restaurant amongst Persians who had all attended the German school in Teheran. Playing on the TV in the background was the World Cup Switzerland against France.
What will tomorrow bring ?
