Exactly two weeks to the day. That’s how long I’ve been in Fort Lauderdale and it’s been a full and interesting time. On the day of my arrival I happened to meet a new maaitjie – someone my age who is a little bit older than the general I-am-19-and-only-here-for-a-good-time yachtie. Words can not begin to describe the feeling of making friends with someone like-minded in a strange city and country. It’s also ironic at the same time, because I remember the advice of a very wise woman not too long ago (she’ll know who she is!) – stating that when you start traveling you become friends with the most unlikely people you would have ever thought.
