I’ve met Erick during several info trips organised in Romania for foreign bloggers and I realised that this project can extend to the whole world. Just because everybody is listening to music.
Erick is one of the coolest guys I’ve ever met. He has a travel blog named Minority Nomad, visited 74 countries and he actually wants to be the first African-American to visit every country in the world.
We talked about a lot of things, about him fighting in Iraq and the places he visited so far, but more important he opened my mind about the problems the minorities are facing in a society. He’s a cool guy and he knows that my racist remarks are just jokes, but the discussion on this subject I will treat in a dedicated blog post because it’s very interesting.
He’s from Austin, Texas, as he calls it The World’s Capital Of Music, therefore I had to ask him to be a part of my project. Music is clearly a part of his life and at some point I’ll have to accept his invitation to come to Austin. So, on the last day he spent in Romania we met in town, he put his Beats in-ear headphones (which are so cool!) and asked him what he was listening to. When he told me, immediately I remembered my childhood and one of my first contacts with foreign music. That’s because he is listening to Tupac! And I was listening to Tupac on audio cassettes back then. Walkman, baby, remember?
