I travel quite a bit for work, and while I don’t talk much on my flights, I make a point of chatting with my Uber driver once I land. It’s often not the city I’m visiting that I learn about, however, rather it is the country the driver has emigrated from. Many Uber drivers are immigrants. In their home countries, they might have held very different occupations, including as lawyers or physicians.
