Small world…

It happened when I was reading some gossip magazine in the waiting room of our rental agent. “Alexandra?” I looked up. A couple was standing by the door looking at me, the girl said “I recognize you from your blog! I’m Kim!” All I could say was “wow! what a coincidence” while I thought “wow! people recognize me from my blog! does that qualify me as famous??” (hehehe, maybe I had been reading to many gossip magazines at that point)

Kim is a girl from NY whose husband is going to study for a semester here in Barcelona. She contacted me back in November through Tripadvisor to ask questions about how to rent an apartment and about life here. We’ve chatted frequently since then and I knew she would be coming soon but wasn’t sure exactly when. Turns out she’s been in Barcelona for about a week now and we just happened to walk into the rental agency at the same time ;) Small world… Friday night we’ll go for sushi at Kibuka!!

Born and raised in Brazil, a Canadian stole my heart and took me to Canada in 1999. After seven years between Montreal and Toronto, we then moved to Barcelona, Spain, where I did research for my PhD thesis. This blog began as a chronicle of our adventures while living in Barcelona and exploring the old world and has acquired a life of its own after we moved back to Canada.
