I thought that I should write about something else but food for once so here it goes. :) This past Monday I went to an Austrian meet-up in NYC. I had stumbled upon a link on the Austrian consulate in New York website and signed up to be notified of any meet-ups in the area. Not too much later I received an email for the next meet-up. I had no idea there were so many Austrians in NYC. It was definitely interesting to meet all these different people, hear their reasons for why they are here (relationships, family, jobs,...) and just chat. There were all sorts of different people, some coming over for love, some working for the UN, one guy a "struggling" actor ( http://www.dirt-nyc.com/), etc. etc. The meet-up took place at the Wharf Bar on the East Side in NYC. Apparently these meet-ups happen about once a month so I am looking forward to the next one.
Besides that not much else going on. I was off from work yesterday but didn't really accomplish anything. I still want to de-clutter my dresser/closet and organize the kitchen cabinets. Maybe I will have a better chance this weekend. I am working 1/2 a day on Saturday and am off Sunday. So we will see.
Mail update. No letter have gone out since my last update. :( Received letters from/still owe replies to: Barbara/Austria and Tiffany/OK.

That sounds like such a nice meeting. And you travel to Austria fairly often, don't you?
Who knows, maybe you'll form some interesting friendships at those meetings.
Have a great weekend.
