Back Home Again ~ Chicago - Pittsburgh

My American Airlines flight to Pittsburgh took me there by way of Chicago where I had a 4 hour layover. I didn't mind. It was delightful just to see the sit and watch the people, everyone in a hurry, not noticing that I was admiring them, the first Americans I have seen in a long time. Just the sight of them made me feel that we are a breed of our own, different than Europeans. Some light-footedness, some ease, some freer rein. And they were all speaking my American language.

I know people who have moved to England from the USA. Their american accent has changed to a Brittish accent. Some who have moved to a country where the 'r' is rolled in that country's language, find themselves rolling their 'r's when speaking English!
I wonder if Charles has a bit of German accent hidden in his Pensylvania English?
