I moved to America from Jamaica;
broken English was what I spoke;
the environment was unfamiliar
and the people were friendly, but
the food tasted awful. I remember eating
my first McDonald’s hamburger or cheeseburger
after stepping off the plane and thought
it was the nastiest thing I had ever tasted,
the winters were brutal, and it took a lot of
adjusting, but now I’m too Americanized.
