The Low Cost of Hospitality

Last night, I had an unexpected house guest...a friend of my cousin was coming through town, and had not pre-booked a hotel...she happened to land here during Caribana weekend (extremely busy!!), and there were not hotels available.

I had never met this woman but she had been given my number in a `call her up if you run into trouble`context...so she did!

I explained that I live in a small one bedroom but offered her my bed for the night (she wound up sleeping on the couch), and took her for dinner...

We wound up talking until the wee hours of the morning about all kinds of stuff, and had a really great time...we have promised to keep in touch via IM...she lives in Australia...

Sometimes it is good to put oneself out for a stranger...
