Today I look around as I go into work and I know
I’ve merged with the culture.
I know because I see the families with babies on mopeds with no helmets and children in the back of trucks, or even families in the back of trucks all sitting on plastic lawn chairs as they drive down the road, hair blowing in the wind and laughing.
And I see insane taxi drivers running or jumping lights and people wearing pants and coats in 80 degree weather… and… none of this seems strange to me.
That’s how I know.
