Just a few things to share today, because I do hope you read yesterday’s post about citizenship (and share your opinions!). In fact, last week we hit a particularly interesting milestone (for those of us that are unusually preoccupied with demographics and racial politics)—in the US, now over 50% of babies born everyday are non-white. I wonder if this will have a significant (or, you know, any) impact on how we discuss race in this country—I’m optimistic that it could usher in a generation of greater tolerance.
Now, this piece has sort of a misleading title, and is actually not at all about blending in with the tourists in London, nor about learning to ride a Boris Bike. Rather, it’s a very cool stylized train of thought about what it feels like to move through such a complicated and diverse city. Definitely worth checking out.
And lastly, a few tips on how to feel more relaxed and “at home” while you’re on the road. I like this because so many of the points dovetail nicely with my own tips forovercoming travel fatigue! (self-promo, self-promo…)
