What are the Chances?

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

You’re in a foreign city with an area of 86.9km² and a population of over two million. You know less than 10 people who live in the city. What is the likelihood that you will see a friend who arrived on the plane just an hour earlier in the metro on the otherside of the train line? Apparently quite high. Last night Tom and I saw our friends Sarah and Brandon (a Frog and a Yank who are touring Australia this year and who we met before we left for France – they are back in Paris to apply for visas etc) standing on the opposite platform at a random metro station in Paris. We all had dumbfounded looks on our faces and all I could do was whack Tom in the arm and point at what I was seeing. Remarkable.
