A few days back, as you can probably tell from what I wrote down, I was feeling like all this things I wanted to believe in lately were turning out to be childish ideas...I thought It might just be time to grow out of them... and although I won't be writing everything that has happened in the past weekend right now, I can give you a little preview:
Saturday morning I received a call from a Couchsurfer (don't know what that means?? check www.couchsurfing.com), his host would be unable to receive him that day and he was wondering if he could stay at my place. Lots of doubt came along, opening the doors of your home to an absolute stranger is not something you would normally do...still I said yes and a couple of hours later I was searching the metro station for a tall blond (easy to spot in this city) with a large backpack.
"He had me at hello" , jaja not in a romantic sense I must clear that up, but in some way different... three days later he's stilll here and I have already learned so much. A. is following a dream that takes a lot of courage. I can't imagine what it was like to make that first step that would set all things in motion. His life changing forever. And yet he's here and Im lucky enough to be hosting him and to try to learn a bit more everyday....
Funny enough with him camed my second Couchsurfer, an emergency CS so to speak! and also a couple of new friends and the idea of a world filled with open arms...it sounds cheesy as hell I know, but right now Im really happy.
I'll write about this whole thing when it's trough and I've had time to digest it... right now I just want to learn more..!
