We definitely need to go for coffee. Say you don’t happen to work in the post office do you?  I was told by a local there is an American from Chicago that works there.

We should all plan a time and place to meet. My name is Kerrie. You can contact me here. I have not found a job yet so I’m pretty flexible. Great to have a few expats so close by. How long have you lived here?

Snowie, you should edit out your phone number unless you want every Tom, Dick and Harry calling you!  :)

It looks like it’s been removed. Kay can you delete this message if it shows my number?  Next time I will inbox it instead of adding it to a thread.
