Interesting post about the disconnect of the emigre. I don't often feel that strongly disconnected, but then I'd studied the language (and culture) of Japan for a number of years before moving here.
You might find Eva Hoffman's book "Lost in Translation" an interesting read (nothing to do with the Sophia Coppola film). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eva_Hoffman
Could you learn to use lj-cut tags on long posts?

I didn't think anyone much used their actual friends view any more. You do? *Surprised*
I did study the culture and so on, but only trivially shallowly -- but then again, it's much more European, and indeed, more Westernised than many of the Slavs, I'm told. Czechoslovakia was the easternmost extreme of the European beer/wine belt, for instance -- east of here, and indeed north, it's vodka land. Do Not Want.
