The magnificent Duomo di Firenze!
Very quick post, because I’m starving!
I’ve come to Florence for three days and I’m sitting in a hotel common area with two strangers. It’s a small room and the place where the wifi is strongest, hence my excuse for coming here. I thought should there be people present, I would end up chatting to them.
There are two people, but they both have headphones on. This makes communication slightly difficult as you have to make a real effort to catch people’s attention when they’ve got their headphones on.
We’re all about the same age, mid twenties, more or less. And we’re all sitting in the room as if we are alone. It feels a little unnatural. Now, I hold my hands up, as it’s obvious I’m using my computer. I don’t have headphones on though.
I think our generation has lost something in terms of the ability to communicate with each other and it’s a pity. We always have our heads stuck in screens. Maybe I should walk over to the other two and take their screens and insist that we have ten minutes enforced small talk. Forced fun, as they call it. Haha, it bodes well for my sanity that I am of course joking.
I’m sure there’ll be plenty of opportunities in the near future to meet people 🙂 Ciao for now!
