Beach Of Babel

It’s often said that Westporters live in a bubble, disconnected from the rest of the world.

The other day, on a short stroll at Compo Beach, I heard the following languages:

  • United NationsItalian
  • German
  • French
  • Spanish
  • Russian
  • Japanese
  • Swedish (or perhaps Danish or Norwegian — it’s Greek to me)
  • And of course, New York

    I’m sorry, but just because Westporters travel a lot and that people of many cultural origins are attracted to the town does not indicate anything contrary to the fact that Westporters live in a bubble that is both comfortable and pressurizing.
