It actually made me stop and think why that seemed so strange (apart from the irony of course)...and when I thought back to my life in the UK, I realised that when I went to any of these groups there they were quite impersonal, and that unless you went with friends you didn't really socialise. Here though, after every class most people stop for a coffee or a drink and a chat...I'm not sure whether it's because the ex-pats are in a minority and so stick together more, or whether the lifestyle here is just more suited to socialising, but I must say I have no complaints!
Lots of eating, drinking and singing!
I hope you too have had a festive week!
Thanks for dropping by!
take care of you
