So there I was, sitting in a dingy internet shop on a back street of Mumbai, when I hear a voice, ‘Is that Clare Mulvany?’. Low and behold there was Arron Kennedy, a friend of mine from Ireland who I had not seen or heard from in about four years. Last I had heard, he was running a computer shop in Cavan, but no, he is living in Mumbai, studying to be a Montessori teacher.
Meeting up was fantastic. I got introductions to some of his classmates, and was able to gain some insight into what college life is like here. Plus it happened to be Arron’s birthday and I was able to tag along to his party. I even got a jiving lesson!
Gosh, it is indeed a small, oddly connected, wonderful world
