From This to That

Was just IMing with a high school friend who’s in Kathmandu.

And with a college friend, whose friend just returned from Bangladesh. (A degree of separation, it seems, but not really: All who have been to Bangladesh are part of a secret society.)

At a recent journalism conference, Doug McGill said: Anybody who’s lived overseas has a different perspective on the world. They have certain insights, vocabularies.

That’s probably not always true; much depends on the nature of your stay.

But for a positive example, I cite the latest entry in Jim Secreto’s blog. (He’s the aforementioned friend-in-Nepal.) It’s well-observed, well-written, and well-titled: “The place where the world changes from this to that.”
