Sometimes they click — a whole crew from a hostel where I stayed in Nashville went to Memphis together and reunited on Beale Street.
Sometimes not — I left a hostel in Montreal prematurely after a friendly fellow from Cote d’Ivoire (who seemed to be living there permanently) made one too many passes and finally tried to invite himself into my bed one night.
