From Lisbon around the world in 2 hours

Sitting on a bench in Rossio waiting for our British friend arriving from UK.

Martin from Copenhagen on Messenger. My friend Carla from Mexico is in Lisbon – you should meet.

While gossiping with Vivienne in a cafe on Rossio a guy stops at our table… You guys are from Kathmandu?

I instantly recognized the smiling face: Hi Javier!

Annette was alomost falling down the chair.

I usually NEVER remember names.

Still I recognized Javier who is from Argentina but lives in Miami. He visited Tings in Kathmandu for only 1 day together with Enikő Hámori from Hungary back in 2011.

While Javier told us about his life and especially his Amigos Near Foundation a souvenir pusher stops at our table and hands over all his accessories.


The Souvenir Pusher: Sir – help my family in Senegal
ME: I love Senegal… Kafountine & Cap Skirring are my favorit beaches. The best in the world. And I love the music…. stayed a couple of days in Zuiguinchor
The Souvenir Pusher: Oh Sir – thats my town – please have this present. We’re friends.

This morning I woke up with an Afro bracelet on my right arm and this post from Javier on my Facebook Timeline

2015| Lisbon, Portugal. This is a danish couple. That owns a very nice boutique hotel that i stayed in 2011 in Katmandu, Nepal. And just saw them having wine on the road in Lisbon. Great to see you again Amigos!
