Ring the bell!

A few days back I took part in my first Hospitality Club meeting. At first I was reluctant to go not knowing anyone and never been to such a thing before, but it turned out to be a very fun crowd indeed. It took place at a little place called Piaf and crammed in about 70 people. I don't think I've ever been in one room with people who have traveled more, were from more diverse backgrounds and had a wider range of interests.

Through the past two weeks I've been hosting people from the club for the first time. I had two Brazilian girls and then two Mexican guys - all very fun, well-traveled and young people with interesting things to say. When I first stayed with someone as a guest I couldn't really imagine why people would be hosting so much, but now that I'm doing it myself, putting back into the hospitality system and getting to know new fun people doesn't seem like that much of a bad thing after all.
