It's so strange how you can't seem to find the person you think that you are at "home". it's like you're always an outsider.

Sup gringa? I feel the same way with my Turkish culture. I was not born there and I do not consider it "home", however, I think I look pretty damn Turkish (or Spanish...whatever) but everytime I go there, people think I am a foreigner. This makes me realize that culture is largely in body language and dress as opposed to genetics!

I enjoyed reading this. I found myself being able to relate with it very well. Canadians are such a special and interesting group of people..on one hand we're Canadian because we're born here but on the other we'd often rather associate our ties with our roots and our parents country. Do you think your time away will change how you see yourself? Good luck on your placement, Ill be in touch! aj (a past intern)

Gringaaaa!! I quite enjoy the analogy of the backward apostrophes. It shows how you go back to your canadian culture and relate back to it. I hope this makes sense...

Ya llegue...
