Meeting abroad

I am from the US, but I was working as a bartender in a burger pub in England while studying there. I heard another American accent in the bar and I spoke to the patron. It was quite rare to meet another American in the area, as it wasn't near London and didn't have a large international population. We started chatting and it turned out they were visiting from Virginia. I mentioned that I had lived in Virginia for a time. They asked where. I said a small town in Northern Virginia. They said, "oh I live in a small town in Virginia!" It turns out they were from the same small town in Virginia that I had lived in for several years. A town of perhaps 5,000 people, and they happened to walk into a bar in a small town in England where I was working.
