Husband and I attended an dinner our first evening in town. I’ve written about the communal table service before; it is essentially a dinner party of strangers (who at the end of the meal are on the way to being friends!)

We had a mini-United Nations in attendance. Guests’ roots included the UK, Germany, Israel, Lebanon, Iraq, Ukraine, Hong Kong, Canada, USA, and France. Terrific political, travel, and (of course) food conversations. Dinner was a nine-course meal of Spanish specialties given an Asian twist. (Delicious!)

Now if only someone would tell me how to answer the question, “How do you explain Trump?”
