This afternoon, J and I headed for the airport. We were going to meet with one of my friends from Germany. Well, he’s actually the brother of my ex-boyfriend Thomas, but we have always gotten along really well and when he emailed me a couple of weeks ago that he would be coming to LA in June, I was really excited.
I hadn’t seen Stefan in quite a while and it was a little awkward at first to see him “here” in Los Angeles. It’s kind of strange to see people on the other side of the world that you’ve so far only seen in a very well-known environment back home. You know what I mean?
Stefan is actually here on business for a week, but he’s our first visitor from my hometown nonetheless and that’s exciting.
So we picked him up at the airport, picked up his rental car and headed for a Japanese restaurant here in Westwood to have some dinner together.
He was clearly tired after the long flight and due to the time difference [it was already 3 a.m. local time in Germany], but he was in a very cheerful mood and we had a great time catching up. He and J hit it off right away. Stefan works in the “audio” business and therefore J was really eager to talk with him about sound equipment :)
Unfortunately, we only had about 2 hours together, because he was tired and had to drive another hour to get to his hotel in Anaheim where he’ll be staying for the next week and where he’ll be attending an international convention. He’ll have a busy schedule the next couple of days – but maybe, if we’re lucky, he’ll be able to squeeze in another dinner sometime this week. That would be nice :)
We once again realized how nice it is to have good company and we clearly need to make some new friends.
