Happy Birthday InterNations!

In the spirit of global cultural exchange, an international organization with a thriving branch here in Taiwan is celebrating its 5th birthday. InterNations is an invitation-only expatriate community present in over 300 cities worldwide. It was designed for “people living and working abroad” to connect with each and with all ʺglobal mindsʺ. Each month, local events are held which bring both expats and locals together in a fun and festive environment. The website: http://www.internations.org/ is a wealth of information for anyone contemplating a move anywhere in the world! Here you’ll find “Expat Guides”, “Expat Magazine”, and links to information and InterNations events held around the globe. In Taipei, we are fortunate to have our very own chapter: http://www.internations.org/taiwan-expats , led by Francis Morris of El Salvador. I met up with Francis recently at a monthly DinnerNations evening held at Kunming Islamic restaurant. (Talk about a mini-UN!) When I arrived I knew only one other person and by the end of the meal, I’d not only made some new friends, we had already planned a get-together for the following weekend!

No, I didn’t get blown away by the storm…

It actually fizzled out, headed away from us, and then changed direction, swooping back by to dump a boatload of rain on us – but not enough wind to qualify for a typhoon day off! Oh well, there’s always next year….

Since then I have been so swamped at work, but never fear, I’ve had some fun adventures I’ll share with you shortly.
