Let's eat some Mediterranean food and socialize! If the weather's nice, we can eat outside on the patio. Michael will be giving a quick presentation on a fascinating writing system. Afterwards, feel free to ask questions and get to know your fellow language enthusiasts.

I look forward to seeing you there!

      And thanks for excusing my misstatements; it's been 15 years since I have been in a linguistics classroom!

      You know, Meghan, the funny thing is that those words don't seem strange to me anymore. I guess that's when we know we're going crazy. ;-)

    Hey, everyone! Thanks for a great meetup. As promised, I put up a few pictures of the event. I love seeing the frantic people in the background trying to stay dry while we had our fun. See you all at the next meetup and until then, send me your ideas here!

    Hello to everyone,
    I could not be there at 6:30pm. Because ı when ı told my husband there will be meet up at the Neomonde, he told me he knows that place and he took me the other branch of Neomonde. When ı was there, ı saw just 3 people in there and to make sure ı asked the cashier if there were any appointment for about 20 people. She said no to me. Right there my husband checked his email for the right address and then we noticed that we are not on the right place. After that we wanted to come there but it was raining like cats and dogs at that time and could not leave from there anymore. We had to wait for it to be stop. Unfortunately it was too late for us to go back and meet you all. I hope you will understand my situatian. So sorry from you all. I would like to meet you next time.
    Thanks,
    Hatice
