My dear friend, Nathan, came to visit me while he was on a whirlwind trip of Europe. He lives and works in Singapore, but he had a good excuse to visit Europe because he had several friends here at once (in Spain, Belgium and Italy). He brought me some Belgian beer after visiting a brewery or two in Belgium. Luckily, I had some blue box mac & cheese that Katie had brought me a month before. It made for a quite tasty dinner.
Although his visit was short and I was swamped with schoolwork, we made as much out of his trip as we could. We went to the Rastro Market, enjoyed lots of food, watched a game at Bernabeu and met many IE friends.
I realized during his trip that we had been friends for 10 years! What I love about Nathan is that he’s always very thoughtful and very honest. I often ask his opinion on big decisions I’m making in life because he can quickly get to my thoughts and pull them out of me.
