Being a bit of an old git these days,
I find walking and "talking to strangers" such a delight.

Sometimes I can speak with 5 or more
new people a day in Brentford and around.

Several Ukrainians and Polish people come to mind. At Brent Lea yesterday
I spoke to a lady who had been at the Holiday Inn for a conference. She was on her way to Boston Manor Station and onwards to Kings Cross and Yorkshire.
She had recently returned from a one year assignment on Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic and prior to that 4 years on the Falkland Islands.

"Where you in the Services"?
" No I worked for the UK Goverment"
Then my bus arrived. Not hers!

On buses I chat to 90 years olds who
rarely engage in conversations.(they say)

Speaking to a Russian student at a W6 cafe was interesting too.

So if you CAN get out and about (not in a car!) enjoy walking and talking.

It's good for your mind ... and theirs perhaps.

Any similar experiences?
