A friend of mine recommended this group long ago when it first started. I was given Nestor's number which I used to call from time to time to find out what events where being held. Eventually, I signed up on this website.
I'm fairly fluent in Spanish having spent a lot of time in Spain and South America, a place I now consider another "home". Although I am comfortable speaking in Spanish almost everyday, I still need to perfect my speaking Spanish skills.
I had joined this Meetup about two years ago so that I could have the opportunity to meet people with similar interest in Spanish and cultures of Spanish influence. The organizers are really good at setting up interesting and fun events.
I attend this meeting every so often; maybe I attend it three times per year. But, after last night I am most likely going to become a regular participant. I really connected with people who want to enjoy life, which is way too short -- literally. Spanish MeetUp is a place not only to practice your Spanish, but also a place to soak up another way to live, of communicate, and of socialize. Yesterday, we went beyond cultures.... Special thanks to the great company.
