    I am planning to go to South Africa in December and would like to hear about some of the best places to see there

      South Africa, there should be lots to see and do. You don't want to miss Cape Town, Soweto, a safari. I can share more information when we meet. I have to say that South Africa is like many countries in one. You can't go wrong, it offers something for everyone.

    Ha Geogina,
    I regret that I'm unable to attend the gathering today. I got a call be at work at, about now. I work down in Shakopee, and will be at work when you all get together.
    Please note that I'm still very interested in this group, and the matter it is concern with. I really hope that I would have the chance to attend, when you call again.
    If it be something you could do, I'd ask that you keep me posted.

    I had a fabulous time. I have not laughed this much in a long time. Everyone was so nice, with wonderful stories to share, the conversations were great, and the time just flew by. Thanks everyone for attending. I am looking forward to our next event...The African Thanksgiving in November. I will share the notes with you later.

    It was nice meeting you all. I had a great time and learned a lot. My quote for the day ... Do not always using you head to rationalize thing. Let the head and the heart work together. ( By Georgina and modified by me . haha)

    Hi Everyone,

    This is just a quick reminder that we're meeting at 3 pm on Saturday. I will be there by the time you arrive so ask for me by name. I'm looking forward to meeting you. Remember to bring an item to discuss with the group. We'll have cake and get to know others. Furthermore, we'll discuss out goals for the group. I'll be fun, learning, and also looking for opportunities to connect and remain engaged with the cultures/countries that have become a part of who we are. There's more... See you on Saturday

    I have a previous engagement that is likely to interfere with this meeting. So I can't definitely say yes and there is no maybe option. If I can make it I will be late.

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm attending the African Awards Gala tonight. It's put on by the Mshale organization to honor Africans in the United States and friends of Africans. Proceeds also support Books for Africa. Unfortunately, it's a sold out event but hopefully you can make it next year. They have some high profile keynote speakers from Africa attending this Gala. I'll be sure to take and post pictures for you to enjoy. The Mshale org. also has an informative newsletter that you can sign up for-it's free. Here's the link below:

    I'll be there. It will be fun to visit with others to share stories. I have a roommate from Ethiopia. She was a former student and is now in her 20's.

    I will be there. You have been asking to meet with like minded people who enjoy, appreciate, and understand these exotic cultures. This is it.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
