Oy. I’ve just spent the afternoon making a Power Point presentation about America.

Somebody got it into their head that the students in my program needed to make fun presentations about their country of origin. Which is fine for the Germans and Poles, there are like 10 each of them, but I’m the only American. Tomorrow I get to present with the Canadian and the Mexican. Three of us total from the Western Hemisphere.

As you can imagine, it’s very easy to represent a country of 300 million people, especially when I don’t live there on purpose. And thanks to cultural imperialism, what can I tell people they don’t already know?

Well, I tried to make it funny, at least. And we’re serving Mexican food, so hopefully that will make people happy.
