All my wonders and joys of travelling in second class were rudely extinguished while spending an uncomfortable night on a seat. To pass the time I started talking with frederico an italian kid in my cabin. Its nice meeting the next generation of italians who can speak english and it was even more refreshing that they are very well politically aware, a trait sadly lacking in my american contempories.
Strangely our conversation veered towards Russel Peters the canadian-indian comic. His 'Indian0 - no Indiano and what the fuck' sketches seem to be very popular and its amazing how many cultural borders comics can cross - not to mention give us a common talking point.
Hopefully frederico checks out the blog and sends me his email address. Wishing him the best of luck and hopefully he does travel to india sometime.
