My Age Through Countries
Instead of age, I have a new way of measuring my time on this earth. Countries visited. In that regard, I turned one with Canada. Started Kindergarten with Australia. Entered double digits with the U.K. Began my teens with South Africa. Reached legal driving age with Greece. Became a voting citizen with Spain. Closed out my teens with the U.A.E. Started my twenties with Turkey. Turned twenty-one with Ecuador. Reached the milestone of a quarter century with Sri Lanka. Survived the musician’s unlucky curse with Lebanon. Rounded out my twenties with ancient Egypt. I’m looking forward to seeing how my thirties will turn out . . .
