Our picnic in October last year was such a great success - let's do it again! Let us get together, bring some snacks and beverages (non-alcoholic, please) to share, practice Arabic and have fun!
We'll be meeting in the beautiful Vista Hermosa Park near Downtown LA. Vista Hermosa Park is a little know gem right in the heart of Los Angeles. You can find reviews of the park and directions here: http://www.yelp.com/biz/vista-hermosa-natural-park-los-angeles, or you can google and find out more about this park and see photos.
You'll find me near the waterfall area (this little map of the park http://www.flickr.com/photos/comparator/5827159149/ will help you find the waterfall). If you are new to the group, you'll recognize me by my picture (and I'll make sure I look like my picture! This means, I'll postpone dying my hair purple for the time being... )
Other than some food to share, I recommend you bring a pen and a notebook. I'll try to come earlier and make sure we have a picnic table for the group. Last time, all tables were taken, but we can have better luck this time. If you happen to have a folding chair, or a blanket to sit on, please bring it just in case.
Important: I do not have a smart phone (by choice - I feel happier and freer this way), which means I do not carry internet with me. So, if you need help with directions, are running late or just have a last minute question about the meeting - please call me, do not e-mail/post comments to the group. My phone is (626) 390-5676.
The picnic will be canceled in case of really bad weather (I mean - really, really bad weather, like heavy rain, not slight overcast or a bit chilly or a bit windy. I recommend you bring a sweater - if we stay late enough, it will become chilly).
I'm looking forward to seeing you there!
