Desire is a funny thing. Need a car to get from one side of a Greek island to the other? No problem. Just hand over your US driver’s license and sign the Greek contract by that “x.” Done it.
Want to tour Poland with a group of 75 Norwegian high-schoolers? Take your seat on the bus and hand your passport over to that officious little Polish man in a big-ass uniform and try to figure out what’s happening in two languages you don’t understand. Done it.
Shopping for fabric in Provence? Remember your manners and just keep handing over Euros until the goods are in your hands. Done it.

Stimulating the US-Japanese economy? Done it.
