It's bound to happen at least once in your life. That's one of the perks of living in Montreal; our cultural diversity (and poutine of course). It's so exciting to go out and never know who you'll end up running into. Especially since it's so hard to guess what nationality a person is from these days.
You're one quarter Chinese, half Brazilian and a quarter South African? Damn I don't even know one person from any of those countries.
The beauty of diversity, people.
Did you know, according to scientific research, children from different nationalities end up being smarter and taller than children from the same nationality? I know I didn't. Time to get out of your comfort zone and meet Mr or Mrs. [enter exotic last name here].

5. Become more open minded.
6. Get to learn a different language.

8. You're from different groups of friends. (Therefore no running into ex lovers).
9. Have a free place to stay in a foreign country.
