Later in the conversation, I asked him how people dress. I would like to blend in when I'm there and look less western, since the news channels can't shut up about the elevated terror threats in Europe directed at Americans.
"They dress pretty nice," he said, "but very toned down. Black, brown, gray. That stuff."
"Okay," I said, making mental wardrobe notes.
"I wouldn't wear all of your Hollywood flashy crap, like you're headed to a magazine shoot."
He said that for my safety, right?
Maybe Leroy at the post office was speaking for the Universe when he told me, "There's no need to vogue."
