The polls were still open when I landed in NY and learned of Macron's victory while in the air to LA. I did a quiet fist pump when I read the news. I volunteered some for his campaign. I like what he has to say about the changes that France needs to make in its economy if it wants to prosper. He understands that France needs to create new business and the resulting jobs if the country is going to meet then needs of it citizens.
I'm staying in Santa Monica for the week and I surprisingly like it here. If for some reason I were to move back to the US, I'm believe it would be Southern California. Perhaps a cute little bungalow within bicycling distance of downtown and the water.
