I was waiting to cross the road when Burt spoke to me. He made a comment about the 4 transit cops across the road just coming out of the coffee shop. With coffee and donuts in hand Burt said "somethings never change and was just the same back home in the the US". I asked him if he was just passing through; "yes" he replied "for the last 20 years" and he laughed. "Maybe I should return home some day" he went on to say.
