Thanks John Doe, for your valuable contribution, I can`t remember the countries of Origin of all the US Citizens/expats that attended the Coffee Chats....As was said, there are few expats in residence. I can think of only 5 native born U.S. expats,currently living in BA. Even "Steve in BA" isn't. Yesterday,at Coffee Chat there were 7 attendees.In the past there were a many as 30
The U.S. government no longer has an Ambassador to Argentina..
Not starting a debate of any kind, but so happens that the person who made that comment , is neither from Europe, or the US,and yes, we at this forum,need to accommodate those folks too.....i absolutely get what you are saying, however, what i was trying to tell you, is that being politically correct is what in many cases killed the interest of reunions...... some folks became a little too tired of the politically correct police, that's all, enjoy your stay!!!!Yes Sergio, I really miss the openness of the old expats I used to know. We shared great times together and we eventually became friends. I was hoping to find some people with the same spirit.
Sounds nice to attend to the coffe meetings to get some of the people in the group.
I just thought it could be a good idea to start again the other kind of meetings where (in my opinion) we share more that in a public place just because we interact more. Thanks.
Mc, I won't get into that, sorry. It's not my intention to start a debate. I just want to tell you that I am the most open person you could ever meet. If you read me you can see that I said "some people". For me it's ok, but I just didn't consider it politically correct and I was surprised to read something like that in a forum where most people are supposed to be from the US or Europ. I accept everyone as they are and that's because I've been around people from all over the world almost all my life, and my best friends are from cultures different than mine.
