Wouldn't you know it. Just as I exited the terminal a kind man walked up behind me and gave me a gentle nudge to get my attention as he offered to walk with me and share the shelter of his umbrella. What a world we live in, when a perfect stranger litteraly reaches out to help another perfect stranger. He walked with me almost the entire way as we chatted about our lives. The first question he asked was..."where are you from". I supose as he had caught me talking on my phone my accent gave me away. So along the way I explained what I was doing here, he told me about his work and his brother who married a mexican woman who turns out to have prefered to live in mexico with their children while he works as a doctor in Bogota - an interesting discourse of the state of marriage progressed from there.
It was nice to arrive at DAS not nearly as wet as I would have without this kind offer and I was in a very good mood having had shared in plesant conversations with a kind gentlman.
Life can be surprising and so very lovely. Don't be afraid to strike up conversation with a stranger, people really can make a good day better.
