be there or be square
So, all you whiney expats, your minds have been made up for you and this year's Annual Whiney Expat Blogger in Germany Meet-Up will take place in the fascinating city of Dresden on the weekend of November 17 and 18, 2007. Please follow the link to J's blog to find out who'll be there and to add yourself to the list if you have decided to attend. Travel and accommodation details are still being discussed. If you have any questions, just post them in the comments at J's post or contact him directly. He's got the scoop on everything.
If you're new in town and still up in the air about coming along to meet a bunch of perfect strangers, wondering what in the world goes on at this type of event, rest assured that no one will make you go bowling, play strip poker or visit more than two museums.
I'm actually almost looking forward to the loooong train trip this time because as of September 1st, there is now NO smoking in any form of public transportation. Ahhhhh! Some smokers are taking it well, others (including Deutsche Bahn employees!) are putting up a bit of a fuss but I'm sure everything will work out just fine in the end. I do wonder how long it's going to take them to scrub that stale smoke smell out of the upholstery, though.
Hope to see you all in Dresden!
