The Letlander and Why

The Letlander begins with our hero's decision to avoid speaking English to English Speaking People while helping change the tire on a motor vehicle. Then one thing led to another and pretty soon our hero was an indigenous Letlander from a semi tropical fictional paradise called Letland employed by the hotel and catering industry.

 The question for our hero's narrator is why? And at the end of The Letlander our hero does attempt to satisfy his narrator's curiosity. Me, fortunately I don't have to concern myself with the details because I too was once a Letlander employed by the hotel and catering industry and rest assured foreignness is the only way to manage the experience, otherwise the answer to the question is very depressing.
