It has been one of the big pleasures of the trip to be able to meet friends I’ve made on the Internet over the years as I travel near where they live. In Groton, Connecticut the other day I had a nice late afternoon snack at a Mexican restaurant with Nancy, who goes back with me in cyberspace somewhere near 10 years.
The notion that someone would take a bit of time out of their life to have a chat with me is really pretty gratifying. To myself, I’m just a guy on a long bike ride- doing something way less interesting by and large than the everyday lives of most folks I know. But somebody’s got to do it, I guess.
Thanks, Nancy, for a very enjoyable hour before I caught the ferry.
