Meeting and making new friends is a funny thing. Not like funny, “ha ha”, but every person I have met has been unique and enriching.
When I was living in Athens, Greece I quickly made friends with everyone there. Including the man standing with me in this photo. He completely took me under his wing like a brother and kept me safe in a part of the city not known for its safety and tranquility. I lost him when we travelled back to Italy together. I’m not sure where he ended up but I still feel connected to him regardless.
