Not that I *need* another blog to add to my Google Reader — the thing is already at like, 100 posts a day from all the blogs I subscribe to — but this one is pretty cool.
The Nice Thing About Strangers has a good mix of cool people-focused travel photos, inspiring or interesting quotes, and very well-written stories about strangers.
If you don’t believe me, here’s an excerpt:
“He stood up when the little old lady came through the doors, since there were no available seats in this section of the U-Bahn. It was not a crowded mid-day, not a rush hour, but so many were sitting with newspapers covering their faces, like shy movie extras. The non-descript Austrian businessman set himself apart by his politeness.
One of my favorite things to do is wander around, sit outside and people watch. I come up with back stories for people who look interesting, and sometimes my fictional entertainment makes me like the stranger all the more. So of course I get a kick out of reading about other strangers and their stories.
Also, with the exception of Colorado, these are not places I’ve ever been 🙂
