Yesterday I had an awesome day. I drove to Los Angeles to meet a twitter friend.
With technology we are making virtual friendships with people all over the world. However when those friends live near you, why not take the time to meet them in person?
Natalia (@comiendoenla) and I (and my little one) met at a local LA restaurant. The Alcove. It is a cute cafe with awesome food. My son ordered the meatlovers omelette, I ordered the smoked salmon omelette and Natalia had the Huevos rancheros.
The plates were so big that we all took some home, but besides great food the highlight of the day was meeting Natalia.
We are both from Colombia now living here and married to Americans. It felt so good to have a conversation in Spanish and talk about food and culture.
I am definitely going to cultivate this friendship. Next time hopefully I get to meet her sister a well.
It would be great to meet more twitter friends from Colombia as well from other latin american countries, so if you read this and want to meet do not be shy and contact me!
