Last night

Last night, I drove down to the waterfront and passed by a much of families walking their kids around at 10:30 PM. It seemed like a real community gathering, with so many people and especially kids around that the late hour felt more like 7:00 PM. Then I realized that all of them were speaking in Russian.

Which is really something, I think, that we have random parks where communities congregate to walk and chat and be together, speaking in native tongues in foreign lands. I wonder if Americans ever do the same in other countries. Or have to.
