It doesn't take long for acquaintances to become friends. It just takes some sort of shared experience to seal the deal.
Take this afternoon for example. Maranatha gave Elia a new DJ'ing machine, so the three of us plus two other friends spent the afternoon banging on things, laughing, and having a great time 'making music'. I know have two new friends.
And... I learned that Norway is the land where dreams come true. Who knew?
