Surprises happen when you travel the world; The other night we went for dinner in a Brazilian Rest; the nice stuff, BBQ roasts, shrimps galore, the whole lot.
After dinner went to our friends H'tl which happened to b 5*. During our most vivid conversation I noticed someone familiar glancing at me from far. Upon closer looks I realized an old 'acquaintance' who also happens to be my old adversary's pal.
Some curiosity, surprise, meeting at a location 10 000 miles from home base, we shook hands.
Noting the unusual place to meet in China we kept on chatting, pretending we forgot the past.
When I asked him about his friend, he said he would give him a call.
It was kind of awkward, our friends from the Gulf noted some oddities in our conversation.
We were all happy when our acquaintance retired back to his room.
Conclusion : 'Chances of meeting someone you know increase when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with'.
Wishing you all success,
