    Dear Expat Neighbors,

    I was waiting till the last minute to see weather forecast apps will change their minds or not but due to rain, the ground is wet and as we're not gonna have a great picnic experience with this weather, unfortunately we are cancelling our picnic:(

    It is super hard to organize events outside but hopefully maybe in October or next year in spring we'll be luckier;) In our last picnic the weather was a bit better but still a bit rainy and still 150 expat neighbors came and glad to have their support but we prefer not to torture anyone under the rain;) we'll be chasing a good weather to deliver a real picnic experience with sunny sky and grass that we can sit on and have food that we don't have to cover them from rain:)

    Thank you guys for your understanding and support. We are sorry for any inconvenience we caused.

    Best, Evrim
