I travel. Not as much as I'd like. Sometimes overseas. Sometimes not.
Wanna make friends in a city?
If you want to get noticed and have people talk to you then try knitting on the T or the bus. I've been working on a scarf for my roommate and while I was waiting for the bus today I had two older Chinese women come up and ask questions about it. Then after class a girl came over and asked to look at it before she ran to catch the 60 bus. So if you're new to a city and feeling a little lonely then just knit in public, you'll have scores of friends in no time!
