The kindness of strangers

I met Christmas Boy at my hostel. He recognized me from Byron Bay although I didn't recognize him. We got chatting and he invited me to the beach with him and his friends on Christmas day.

Being all alone in a big city is never easy. It's even harder at Christmas, but thankfully Christmas Boy and his mates welcomed me into their makeshift celebration with open arms and I had a truly lovely Christmas day.
