  1. USA with 683

This blog continues to be a wonderful way for me to digest the new experiences in the land of milk and money called Switzerland, in this intriguing continent known as Europa and in the more exotic lands of Arabia. Nurturing the blog is an act of personal identification with the struggles of many migrants from around the world to be treated as equals. It is the recognition of what Facundo Cabral and Alberto Cortez, two of the best singer-songwriters from Latin America, sang in a protest song by the title of No Me llames Extranjero (Don’t call me a foreigner).

May 2015 give you the eyes of a newcomer to an old land to experience life afresh every day of the year.
