It has two dimensions: co-presence as mode of being with others and co-presence as sense of being with others (Zhao, 2003). The former emphasizes the physical conditions that ‘structure human interaction’, whereas the latter stresses the ‘subjective experience of being with others’ (Zhao, 2003: 445). As cities become more and more populous and widespread, regardless of whether we like it or not, anonymity has become a deﬁning characteristic of our daily lives (Milgram, 1977). Despite such anonymity, there are still recurrent physical co-presences of people in different locales and on different journeys that engender many ‘familiar strangers’ for us: we only know them
