from here to there

When I left the US to join the Peace Corps, George W. Bush was our president, Michael Jackson was still alive and there was definitely no such thing as “light rail” in Charlotte, NC…

From abroad I celebrated Obama’s victory and mourned Michael’s death (Moroccans are very keen on both, by the way), and now I happily traipse uptown and back on the QC’s fancy new light rail.
