Leesa, tell to your Finnish friends 'TERVE' which means 'hi'.

Betty C. said...

That sounds so fun. I imagine there could be quite a few expats to gather around here, but I don't know of any get-togethers other than among small groups of friends.

I know, I should try to organize one!

Susu said...

Great meeting ya'll! Thank you so much Leesa for coordinating everyone together. Let's do it again soon, right! I also posted on the meet-up on my blog.

Leesa - Thanks for arranging the meet-up. It was nice meeting everybody, and I even got a chance to speak a little Finnish with Susa.
We look forward to seeing you all again on one of our future trips to Paris.

I've never ventured into a Starbucks in Paris. Maybe next time.

Hi Debs...

It's only THIS one that is so fancy... it was the old Italian Office of Tourism that was transformed into a Starbucks.. Hence, the fanciness!!!

TBF/Mrs. TBF... Pleasure was all mine... Next time you come into town... we'll do it again!!! Hope you had a nice time in the City of Lights!

OJL--- Great fun... Yeh... All of us spoke in English... it was great to practice... AND Starbucks!!!!! :) When you and Bruce visit Paris, I'll organize a meetup for you guys, too!!!!

Starman---

Next time you're in Paris, let me know and I'll also around a meetup for you, too....

OH WOW, Leesa....this sounded like SO much fun!

And like Debi just shared...I can't BELIEVE you were in a Starbucks!!! It looks like the lobby of the Plaza Hotel in NYC!!!

I think it's so cool that you've met MANY of your blogging friends!!

And one day..."we" shall meet.

I can tell!
