1. The Peruvian girl who lets you couchsurf for a night in her apartment
She welcomes you with a strong American English accent and right away offers you a mandarin orange and something cool to drink. She is lovely and smart and funny, and when you wake up the next morning, she gives you a delicious strawberry-banana smoothie.
2. The pretty, lonely girl in a bus station waiting for the same bus as you
If you’re brave enough to make the move and go speak to her. Of course you are. You’re a real traveler, right? Then probably she’ll sit next to you on the bus all the way from Porto to Lisbon. And in that time, you’ll discover she’s from Romania, and you’ll both watch the movie Equilibrium on her laptop and even share a frango sandwich at one of the stops.
