ANN POWERS: People might be surprised to hear that. But in bigger cities, the various ethnic communites are larger and don't mingle as much.

GEO: That's one of the things about Seattle that's cool. It's big enough to be a city but small enough to be a town. There's a global identity, but there's also very local identity. We grew up, we spent time here, like I know a little bit about the history of Eritrea, and the Philippines, and Vietnam, and Cambodia, because I have friends that all came from these different places. So, New York and L.A., obviously they're cosmopolitan cities, obviously there's people from all over the world there, but in my experience the kind of mixing among those communities that happens here doesn't happen in those other places.
