Scene: some bar near home, full of people because of the Madrid – Barsa football match.
I am able to enjoy football, but most of the time I end up lost in my own thoughts or analyzing details around. And this time, in front of me there was this girl with a tattoo that got me curious.
– Excuse me, I really like your tattoo and how thin the lines are, where did you get it?
She was with a friend, and both were happy to share all the details. We end up exchanging our websites because this cool couple I just met were two amazing photographers: Raquel Villaécija & Alberto Rojas.
Things like this remind me how easy is getting to know new people, how you can always find a bridge to the one near you, something in common, and how complicated this all seems sometimes.
Last week I was in Burgos attending to iRedes, a congress about social media: two intense days learning a lot and, above all, a great chance to know and talk to awesome people and build new bridges -more details coming soon!
And yesterday, a good friend of mine -who I met in a serendipity way- shared with me this let´s-believe-in-people-again video: Take a seat & make a friend (vía Soulpancake).
Which reminds me about this TED talk with Amanda Palmer about the music business, but from the perspective that should always be more than present: people connecting with people.
Hope you enjoy that!
