My uncle was the only person, who spoke English. The whole family moved to Brooklyn. Staying along due to the business trip of her husband to Bangladesh, my aunt felt like an alien in the new surroundings. When they first came in, the family used to live in the American hotel. Before his departure, my uncle rented a flat in Brooklyn for them. The whole atmosphere was unknown. It concerned different things: food, language, mentality. They had some cash, but were unable to buy products in the grocery. The only place with the familiar menu for them was burger king, not far from their house. For all the time, they mostly stayed at home. It was a really tough life for them. They spend two month inside the apartment, eating only the burger king.
