But you are completely off-base with your "redneck" comment: we don't have the climate for that. In London though, it's quite easy to become a greyneck.
When faced with any variation of the same language or a completely different language the words are going to be often baffling....easy to judge the way something is said and misinterpret what a person is saying.....the French understand only what you say with the correct accent and the correct masc or fem usage.just for starters...we all know a car is masc and housekeeping is fem...apron or overalls, obvious right.
...no idea about red necks, although as a kid I did get sun burnt a lot, being a freckle faced kid...this lot seem happy about it though...

Born and raised in New York City and for most of my adult years lived on Roosevelt Island, smack-dab in the middle of the East River.

^^ Dang, didn't know you were a New Yorker! Only been once but that city is so friggin cool, would love to go back. Not in the wintertime though. Went there in January and I swear I've never been so cold in my life.

I'm gonna ignore the real theme of this thread (history) and just go with the places I've lived.

My life path:

0-14 years - Novalja, Pag Island, Croatia
14-29 - Rijeka, Croatia
29-32 - Dubai, UAE
32-32 (10 months) - Rio De Janeiro, Brazil
32-33 (9 months) - Milano, Italy
33- present (5 years) - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

What was that like? I've often thought of running away there just to get a job at the Burj. (loved skyscrapers since I was a kid)

You know the song "I Get Around" by the Beach Boys? I am the exact opposite of that. I do not get around.

I love it here (although it's sometimes a hectic place to live), but you're spot-on about the cold winters! It's also very hot and humid in summer, and those extremes can be uncomfortable.

I'm extremely jealous that you lived in Milano! It's always been a dream of mine to go to Italy. My grandmother was from Trieste, and I've always wanted to travel there and seek out her birthplace.
