I have lived in the UK for almost 40 years. I studied here, made my career, found the love of my life, and raised two wonderful children.

On my “permanent” vacation, as my grumbling mother has always called it, I embraced British culture. I revelled in the humour, from The Young Ones to The Last Leg. I immersed myself in the music — my wife introduced me to Glastonbury, and the first dance at our wedding was to Wonderwall After years, I understood (thank you, David Tennant) what Doctor Who is all about. Risking my mother’s frown, I finally became a UK citizen.
