Both Lost Jonny and Ying ask what i mean by self-defining as a Global Citizen.
Although acutely aware of my formative years spent in England, not least by my varying London accents, I can, at a push say i´m English. But i´m not really. My grandparents were born in four separate countries in Europe. Stand-up and marathon runner extraordinaire, Eddie Izzard says he defines as a European, but i´m not that either, i´m much more global. Spending years out of Europe in Asia and South America i have affinity to each of these continents.
Take a look through my contacts on Facebook and i am linked to some 400 people located in more than 40 countries on five continents.
My English is quite good; i speak pigeon Spanish, and can be understood in Bahasa, and Cantonese. I can even understand some basic stuff in French. We are all multilingual to a varying extent.
I have three blood brothers, but other brothers too, from Indonesia, Pakistan, India and now indeed Haiti.
Africa marks the 7th continent for me to travel. I am a global citizen.
