Two yeas ago on a trip back to Israel on an EL AL flight, I bought a
few things from the duty free cart on the aircraft. The flight
attendant gave me change of approximately $16 in single Dollar
banknotes. As I was counting the change I observed a gentleman
watching me. When I finished he approached me and asked me if I was
 from Czernowitz. I told him "yes" and asked him how he was able to
tell. He said that he heard me speaking to my wife in English and to
the flight attendant in Hebrew, but when I was counting the money he
was able to read my lips and could see that I was counting in German
and so he came to the conclusion that I had to be from Czernowitz. Of
course he was born there too.
What a small world?
