This year, I moved from New York City where I had spent thirty years, to Amsterdam.

One of the nice little surprises here is that people are less hooked on their cell phones. Oh, don't get me wrong, everyone has a smart phone, and you do see people here walking down the street looking at their phones, and even biking with them (of course), but it's a lot less bad than in the United States - particularly in social events, no one pulls out their phones at all!

On the other hand, my Korean friends tell me that it's even worse there... hard to imagine really.

Many people, myself included, wondered if the whole thing was a trap - to discredit you by planting documents that were forged but that contained information that you strongly suspected to be true from other sources.
