Saying goodbye

One of the people I met online 'and' in person has leaft the country. I've mentioned him once (briefly) in my meeting people offline post. He lived in Haiti for about two years. We met on a travel site and somehow, since we live in the same small city we just came accross each other, more than once, without even planning too. Though, we mostly kept in touch via Yahoo! messenger.

So, he has left the country to go work in Africa. Without the Internet, my world would probably have never crossed his. He's living proof that you can meet nice, decent, "normal" people on the internet. Now I'm not saying he's the only nice and decent person I've met on the internet but so far, no, not at all but, of all of them, he's the only one I've had the chance to meet in person, yes, and I mean it.

As I think of it, He is not really a "net friend" eventhough we initially met on the net, he's more like a real life aquaintance.

Hey there, Have I came by and asked for the Haitian flag yet?

If not, please stop by my site. When you visit, your server country flag stays there. You'll see what I mean when you get there. :)

Thanks, Debbie
