International Encounters

While I was out doing some holiday shopping, I stopped at the Ross store at Arizona Mills, where I found quite an international gathering of discount shoppers. There was a corpulent Russian woman talking to herself as she tried on shoes, a seemingly angry Farsi-speaking woman barking into her cell phone, a Mexican family trying out various toys for the niƱos, & a prolific African muslim family patiently waiting at the checkout.

Who says that Phoenix isn't a cosmopolitan city?

Believe it or not, I've actually found similar diversity in the North Scottsdale Ross too! There are always Russians, Polish, Persians, Indians, and most recently Germans in the store... I was very excited and surprised also...

And of course it's hard to go anywhere without running into people from Romainia. It happened again at a wedding I went to this weekend :)
