    Hello guys, im from Buenos Aires and I thought I could share a story with you about a young, nice black guy who I had the pleasure of meeting during his short stay.

    I was doing an internship in a tourism company when I met Reinaldo, a 22 black brazilian from Minas Gerais. He had come to Argentina to study spanish. We became good friends and I even gave him my cellphone number in case he needed any help. I was sort of his only good friend he had in the first weeks of his stay.

    Im an avid jogger but I was having problems with my knees. After a doctor appointment it turned out that I had to get a meniscectomy on my left knee :(. Got the date, got operated, everything went fine. I had to stay one day in the hospital. Since there were not any problems I figured I'd spend the night alone so I dont want to bother anyone staying with me.

    At aroud 7 pm , Reinaldo shows up in the hospital out of nowhere and tells me he doesnt mind spending the night and sleep on the unconfortable couch next to my bed. I was surprised because I had texted him earlier that I was ok, but I think it was a nice gesture and he was very attentive with me the whole night, and for that Im grateful, no matter how meaningless it might sound to you, I meant a lot to me.

    Some people just like helping others I guess. He left about a year ago, but we still keep in touch. He has invited me a few times to go and visit but I havent had the time, which makes me sad because I want to see him. Maybe next year ill be able to finally meet his family. :)

    There you have it, my short and silly story :p.
