Ryan Chatterton - “Wait, you’re in Toronto? I thought you said you were in Europe.” My colleague was clearly confused, though my American accent probably didn’t help.
“No, not Toronto,” I said. “Tirana. It’s the capital of Albania.” I tried to emphasise my consonants this time.
Geography explained, the revelation about my city often creates more confusion among friends and colleagues, not less.
Why Albania? Isn’t it dangerous there? Do they have roads? I’m surprised the wifi is so good!
