Welcome to DC Expats.It's about time that Washington, DC had an all-encompassing expat group. Whether you're new to the city, a long-term resident, here for a short period of time, or even if you're a native, this group is for you. The only requirement is a desire to make international friends, explore DC and have fun.

About me: I'm an American who has lived abroad in Italy (Siena) and the Netherlands (Amsterdam) working as an au pair for 2 years. I used to attend expat meetups in Amsterdam and loved it (that's how I met my husband). Coming back to the States, I looked for a group that would allow me to continue to meet and befriend international transplants while here at home. To my surprise, I discovered  that there are no general expat meetup groups in Washington, DC, despite all the internationals here.  So, I started one myself.
