Indicative of where we live

So T came home from his first week of school with a paper about getting to know his new classmates. We are at a school largely attended by expats, as such a 25% turn-over in students each year is not uncommon. So, these type of getting-to-know-you exercises are very important. On this one, there were 14 special items and the kids each had to find different classmates that matched one of the items. One of them originally was "_________ has flown on an airplane." Only, that is not so special at school of expats, so it was changed to "has not flown." I just thought that was so representative of the life of these kids - kind of struck me somehow.
