Foreign or Domestic?

I'm attending the International Association of Chiefs of Police annual conference this weekend. At least, they call it "International," but so far I don't see any foreigners. It's international in the same sense that the World Series is international because it includes all the baseball teams in the world of North America plus the stray Cuban or Japanese.

The atmosphere is definitely domestic. Tonight, a guy passed me in the hotel hallway and said "Howdy."

I'll be on high alert for any sign of foreigners as the conference kicks off tomorrow.

My husband is there, too. And I know he brought a few foreigners with him, so it's definitely international.

If you see him, tell him I said hi! Or howdy. Whichever.

Yes indeed, we have a few delegations here with accompanying RSOs, so there's a bit of foreign flavor after all. I might see them at the reception night.
