There is a charming and outgoing Kiwi (New Zealander) woman who is coming to Seattle in October and would like to meet locals and maybe join in some activities---dinner, maybe a football game, etc. you can read her post in "Beyond Europe". It is titled Seattle in October 2015 or something close. She will be here Oct. 2-7.
As the instigator of a few (very few) meetings of Seattle travelers, I would be happy to do this for her---but I will be in Italy on those dates. Can anyone else step up and do it? Linda? I am sure it would be fun to meet her.
Or if you don't wish to set up a group meeting, just send her a PM and set up a meeting on your own.
