Conversation avoiders

At every family gathering, I know I will be asked “Where do you like living better?” all the way to “Where would you want to live?”

Despite knowing that these questions will come up, I have the hardest time answering them. If you know me, you know I am an expert at listening to half the things and pretending to go along in a conversation. And that’s exactly what I have to do in these situations. Pretend I’m thinking and trying to answer, but honestly, I’m just trying to figure out a way to avoid answering them.

I don’t think by simply saying one country, I’m doing justice to any. Of course, no place is perfect in itself. I think it is the experience gained in living in different conditions, adapting to new customs and learning about their traditions and culture makes each and every country stand out. While in India, I enjoyed family life, in Saudi Arabia, I had exposure to a whole new set of culture and finally, in America, I was able to experience freedom and the excitement of trying new things.

And all these experiences made me who I am today, and I wouldn’t want to change that for anything.
