Gracias, Presidente

Thanks to a quasi-random invitation from a friend, I got to spend the evening listening to Vicente Fox, former president of Mexico, speak about global and domestic trends and events at the Boston Speaker Series.



Thanks to randomly standing off to the side of the lobby after the event, waiting for my friend to finish using the loo, I got to shake hands with and personally thank President Fox for his speech. 

Once again: dumb luck and random events shape my life in weird and wonderful ways.
