Since I came to Ireland I have had the experience of meeting for the first time people from China, Africa and Easter Europe. Let me tell you some of these encounters.
This happened two years ago when I was living in the Village of Y. My neighbor Sean used to help me to repair my bicycle. That day he had gone away to Galway and my bicycle was broken.
I went to the town and I found a bicycle repair shop. The owner, an old Serbian man with a long cigarette in his lip asked me to come back after a few days. I came back after three days and I asked him for my bicycle. He went to the garage which was located at the back of the shop. I followed him and I saw two men speaking in Chinese and pointing to my bicycle and laughing. When the saw the owner, they become serious and concentrated.
