Last January I made a really amazing trip around USA. I must say it was a mixture of nice and weird sensations. Why? Well, this country is a little bit of what I thought it was: well developed, with nice people from everywhere and with lots of diversity. You can find everything you want with reasonable prices. In time, everything is meant to be profitable and people really know about their rights, politics and economy.
But sometimes it really sucked! I felt kinda stalked everywhere I went to. And my friends know how much I like to walk carrying a can of beer. So that I felt also stuck inside bars or inside the hostels. And locals said I could go to jail in case cops caught me drinking on the streets.
In fact I went there to study International Business at Florida International University, Miami. Within two weeks I became an USA citizen, with a real determined routine. But now I’ll put a comma here: Miami is an incredible city! If you’re American and have any prejudice for Latin people, forget it. Get there and you’re gonna have fun for sure. Don’t forget to drive down Key West. It’s worth every single mile.
Let’s get it back. I drove USA. I ate USA. I breathed USA. And you know what? I learned a lot of what it is to be a marketer. Because it’s the best example of how the machine works till it’s broken. And then it gets fixed. Quickly. Or totally replaced.
I want a lot more of that experience. And I enjoyed it for real.
