IT’S A SMALL WORLD-Uganda to The Camino to Nepal

One of the nicest things about global traveling is chance meetings with the same people in two way different places. Well this time it’s 3 chance meetings across 3 continents; Uganda, Spain, and Nepal:

Annapurna South elevation 7,219 meters

October 2019, walking on the Camino de Santiago in Spain, I saw this Korean woman with 5 or 6 bright colored clothes walk by and without thinking yell out “Hey Rainbow”. She laughs and continues. Over the next few days I see her often and each time say “Hi Rainbow”. Though we never say more than a few words to each other. Then I start thinking I know her from somewhere and the next day it hits me that she may be a woman I met in Jinja, Uganda ( The Source of the Nile) where are paths crossed going in different directions. Not sure though I hoped to meet her again. But did’t see her again for 2 days and then she walked into a quiet bar/albergue where Mika and I were staying. So I asked her and indeed she is the same woman and produces a picture of us from January, 2017. So we took another similar one.

Then today traveling with Mika Yamanoue we run into “Rainbow” once again in Pokhara, Nepal.
