This morning my friend Sarah brought me a box of Mangos from Pakistan. You know these really sweet and tasty ones that are flown in directly and therefore has the freshest taste as if you we eating them on a blanket under the tree they were picked from. Her father had send them to her, and one box she shared with me for a bread.
I could not finish them all so I brought one to Shantanu with whom I am trading this week. Shantanu deserves his own post actually.
I heard of him half a year ago and we started an email conversation. He is now in Germany and has been travelling the world without spending a penny for the last 14 month. He gets around completely through trading his photography work for a bed, a meal or a flight. Just like me, what keeps him going is not the trades that he gets but the people he meets. I am thankful that his path crossed mine. If you see that you can offer him something, do it, it is an inspiring man and a beautiful project. He is now in Berlin but will head south soon. Take a look at his work here–> The Pixel Trade.
