Changez has experienced two lives. Growing up in Lahore he learned the several traditions related to the culture, and a few years later moved to the United States. He brings up more than once how similar Lahore is to New York. As an outside perspective, I think most of us will never understand the similarities he thinks about because from our perspective there probably isn't anything that would seem alike in the two cities. Changez's different lifestyles have contributed to his unfailing work ethic and persona. New York is busy and caught up in the lifestyle of technology and work while Lahore seems to focus more on the traditions and culture that it encompasses. All of which is shown in Changez's mellow personality. The setting is kind of at his work, while relating back to Lahore. It deals with his past and present experiences.
