A Perfect Stranger - Andrew at Sogeri

Chapter 38 continues...

At the Bus Stop.

The bus stopped right in front and a man inside called out my name. We chatted for a while and talked about what he was doing. He was going to go to town but the diff on the bus was making some noise so they were going to fix that but before they did they had to go see some guys up at the boom gate.

And then Andrew called out.

So I had a chat to Andrew and he told me the same thing.

While waiting there, Andrew and his friend, the guy who knew me then ordered a sausage and some kaukau from the lady beside me who was cooking up a few items on her roadside BBQ.

The dogs wandered in from the nearby houses to smell the sausages cooking. Andrew threw a bit of salt on his sausage, which was served to him on a banana leaf while he remained seated at the back of the bus.

I had missed a shot 30 minutes before of the guy who was the Anglican Church caretaker and I regretted it for a second. Dang, missed my Perfect Stranger opportunity of the day... until Andrew and his bus showed up.
good story and this stranger looks like a friendly sort

Awesome face - looks like a man with a few stories - and he is formally dressed isn't he? (pants on?)

@kittikat - yup, he had pants on... gets frightfully chilly up in the mountains behind Moresby. Nighttime temperatures plummet to at least 16ºC...
