It's a Small World After All

Place: somewhere in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

- Where are you from? - I was asked tonight by a tall thirty-something guy standing behind me in the line to buy banana pancakes from a street vendor.
- I'm from Poland. Where are you from? - I asked back to be polite.
- I'm from the US. - He replied with hesitation.
- Where in the US? 
- Florida. - Again hesitation in his voice.
- I live in San Francisco. - I added.
- Oh, and I live in China. - He replied with a smile and relief and we both started laughing.

How is that for globalization :)
