There are so many great ways to meet interesting people. Three weeks ago I went to the USA for a conference. On the plane from LAX to SFO I encountered two interesting people who I hit it off with! We talked non-stop and encouraged and supported each other during the whole plane ride!

One person is a harp teacher and travels the world doing concerts. The other works at a tech company and wants to start an advice radio show!!! I felt very lucky to encounter these two very interesting, kind and funny people!

At the Oxdord University Press event there was a wine and cheese party after the presentations. It was lovely. I had the chance to hook up with some really nice people. One person was from Vietnam and told me about the workshops at Nellie’s bookstore. Another person was from the United States and her parents are from Vietnam. Another person wakes up at 5 am to teach at her university because if she misses the bus it is an 8,000 yen taxi ride! She shared some delicious beajoulais noeou that she had brought. It was my first time to have white . And one other person is starting to teach ages 2—12 years old. We shared stories and lots of laughs!!!
