This morning I awoke at 4 AM in Stone Town, Zanzibar, to the crowing of an urban rooster. I'm always amazed that no matter where I go, the roosters speak the same ridiculous Roosteranto. They sound like old men at a roller-skating party.
I'm a cultural scientist, writer, and consultant who just coauthored (with Hazel Rose Markus) the best book ever, Clash! Eight Cultural Conflicts That Make Us Who We Are (Penguin/Hudson Street Press, 2013). When I'm not writing or working for my clients, I ride the bike, walk the cat, and bake the vegan bacon cake.
