This morning I meet Tom, a nice guy from North Carolina. We took our breakfast together. Afterwards, while waiting for a taxi in front of the hotel, a Austrian guy joined us, so we shared the cab. The quite extroverted taxi driver is from Israel.
I could't avoid to think of Roy Osherove's posting:
Ali is Iranian, I'm an Israeli. Our countries are enemies. We don't necessarily agree with everything the other one believes in. Yet we talked. I won't repeat the chat because I didn't tell him I'd post about it. But the fact is we talked even through our political issues with each other. Yet another way technology brings us closer together.
Not that I (or Germany) is in any war currently. But I too think that technology breaks many barriers.
