Reply to "HONESTLY: do you feel at home in Canada or the US?"

Thanks for the responses.  I guess the answer really does depend on who you are speaking to.  The other day a Guyanese guy who has been in Toronto for about 45 years told me he still doesn't feel like he belongs.  Not that he had very bad experiences with the 'mainstream' mind you.  Something that seems to make a difference is if someone has a lot of family members here, who also immigrated from Guyana - AND they family members are close and get along well.  Then, it is like they have portable roots (their family) and that helps them to feel much more settled here and they don't miss Guyana at all - or very little anyway.  They have recreated their world right here.
