A Question of Nationality.
I have just learned that my next grandchild will (more than likely) be born in Mullumbimby, Australia. Yes, Mullumbimby; you did pronounce it correctly!
His/her mother, the lovely Kellogg, is half Swedish, and half Russian. She is a Swedish national.
His/her father, the equally lovely Wills, was born here in France but holds a British passport. He and Kellogg are currently resident in Oz.
With world travel being such an easy, everyday, part of modern life, I imagine that this sort of multi-national upbringing must be quite common.
So, I was just wondering; when in the future he or she is asked about 'nationality', the reply must be "I'm an Aussie-Anglo-Ruskie-Franco-Swede".
Sounds like a pretty good mélange to me!
