As I stepped out of Terminal D at the Dallas/Fort Worth airport, it hit me. I was back in the United States of America. If the Texas heat and the ability to understand the conversations around me didn’t get to me, the culture shock definitely did. I stood there wanting to kiss the ground, yet break down and cry at the same time.
