Whenever I spend time in some place new, it occurs to me that I would be a very different person if I lived in that place. Or had grown up there. A person in Portland, Maine only shares some macro characteristics with someone from Philly/Detroit.
What have you taken from the place you live now or grew up in? How has it made you--you? My answer would harken back to my blog post of last Monday. The car industry has always been a big part of my life.
How about you? What place has influenced you and in what way?
