    dear aficionado, for a lot of people, at least european people, america is u.s.a. or canada…. i remember my cousin when (it was the 50s) goes to america and begun her vojage thru the ocean in the ship among a lot of italian emigrants …. when reading your post i rememered that image …. we (outside the united states) have a sort of ” ellis island of the mind” …. a very difficult way to understand “america” but anyway it is the mind of the world …. hugs by your friend from old europe. ciao.

      What’s really funny is that Canada doesn’t consider themselves “America,” even though they are on the North American continent…Canadians are a breed of their own! Then again, people in Europe feel that other continents are “all-inclusive.” This American citizen (myself) knows that different countries, regardless of continent, are still their own country with their own unique style, flavor, dress, cuisine, etc.

      I see things quite differently than most people, regardless of their country of origin – which is why I’m misunderstood by most people, everywhere! C’est la vie…and *HUGS* to you for at least being accepting of my eccentricity!
