One of the things I so enjoy about Oxford is how cosmopolitan it is.
Our cleaners are Brazilian, Kenyan and Zimbabawean. I take French conversation classes with a South African doctor and a New Zealander. My small group which meets together to have dinner every two weeks, has Norwegians in it, and had Mexicans.
There are people I know in church from Macedonia, Romania, Italy, France, Pakistan.
My children have classmates whose parents came from South Africa, China, Nigeria.
I have both American and English friends whom I talk to daily or weekly. I enjoy dealing with people from three or four races on a daily basis.
The population of Oxford is 151,000. It is probably the most cosmopolitan city of 151,000 people in the entire world.
