Every innkeeper experiences the "small world" phenomena frequently. When the Maesrk Alabama was hijacked by Somali pirates we had a guest staying with us who was in Louisville to present a class in international law. He also co-presents with another attorney who is an expert on maritime law. The breakfast discussion included a lively discussion on international waters, the law of the sea and the sorry state of Somalia's government.
A week or so later we hosted a couple from Germany who were in the States to visit their daughter. Other guests asked where they were heading next on their travels around the country. The Germans responded, '"To Savannah" and the other couple responded, "That's where we live!" All at a breakfast table in Louisville, KY.
Cue music - "It's a small world after all . . . it's a small world after all, it's a small, small world."
