In more than eight months of living in Thessaloniki and attending Tandem almost weekly, I can say that I’ve met quite a lot of people there. People with amazing life stories, people from all over the world, travellers, students, professionals and so on. This story is however not about someone that I’ve met in Tandem, but about someone that I’ve met in front of Bord de l’eau. This person had an amazing life story, but I’ll talk rather about the life lesson that I learned that evening.
Tandem is a project focusing on language as well as cultural exchange. Hosted by the Balkan Hotspot volunteers on a weekly basis, everybody is free to join. The goal is for people to learn about different languages, cultures and meet new people.
