Running into Acquaintances II and III

I was walking home from the grocery store last week, when someone came by on his bicycle and said, "are you Shane?". It was Roger - a guy I used to work with 5 or 6 years ago at the RIPE NCC. It turns out he lives in the Jordaan a right near where I do. We chatted a while about ex-colleagues and he was off.

A slightly weirder occurrence is last Saturday night when a few of us were cycling through the red light district and decided we needed food. (Yes that seems weird, but we were just on the way back from Museum N8.)We stopped in a snackbar and Nathalie turned out to know the guy working there. He also works at a snackbar near where Nathalie used to live. Everyone who works there is from Egypt, and apparently all very friendly and nice.
