I grew up in a tiny village comprising about 1500 people.
I always wanted to be a part of what was happening in the world, but I was miles from anywhere. We didn’t even have a bus service really. To get anywhere under your own steam one had to bike or walk three miles to the next nearest village. Which I recently discovered also housed about 1500 people but seemed much bigger. How come they got all the good stuff?
Being centre stage in a world event. Awesome.
