Meet diverse people to satisfy your curiosity about any specific culture or multiple-cultural interest. The goal is to have all world cultures, as well as regional ones around the U.S, made available to or be represented by members,.

If it fosters a bit of understanding of the world outside NE Ohio for us, then more the better. But at least let's check out some of the variety this region has to offer.
