Oops... Last time we had a meeting was in August, and it's November already... which means I did not schedule a meeting for almost three months.
My apologies, and let me schedule a meeting on Saturday, November 23rd.
Let us meet at the same place we met before: the Bookends Cafe, located inside Los Angeles Central library at the corner of 5th St. and Flower St. in downtown LA. We can converse in Arabic with old and new friends (mixing Arabic and English is OK). If you are a student of Arabic, you can also check Arabic materials from the library! The library has a wealth of materials in Arabic. Students of all levels will find something useful there. If you are just thinking about learning Arabic, that will be a good time and place to start.
For your convenience, here is the library's website for directions: http://www.lapl.org/central/. The entrance to the Cafe is from the Flower Street. It will be on your right as soon as you walk into the library.
About parking: use the parking lot right next to the library, on Flower Street. Keep in mind that Flower is one-way street running from North to South. When you go south on Flower, you'll see the library on your left after you cross the 5th St.; keep going just a bit further and the entrance to the parking lot will be on your left. If you have a library card, you can get your ticket validated at the library and pay only $1 for parking.
This is also a very convenient location for those who take public transportation.
I'm looking forward to seeing you there.
