Any Brits?

Can't Post | Private Reply
We're gearing up for our (yea!) move and hubby is trying to find out if there are any organizations for his fellow British ex-pats. He's found one group that was mentioned in Ojo del Lago, but after 3 e-mail attempts with no response, he's given up. Could anyone please recommend a group?

Thanks so much!

I don't know if there is such an organization, but I see about one Brit per week coming in to sign up for Internet Service.

I enjoy reminiscing with them about the pirate stations we used to listen to in the '60s

I can think of at least a dozen Brits (counting Scots, too) whom I know personally but am not aware of any local support organization.

Re the 60's: You've all heard, I'm sure, the old saying, "If you can remember the 60's, you probably weren't really there."

Many thanks--that's probably why no one ever replied!

There is a British group that meets once per month on the 3rd Saturday(?) of the month at the Manix restaurant in Ajijic.

The next meeting of the British Society is Saturday, November 6, 1 p.m. at Manix Restaurant on Calle Ocampo in Ajijic. You donít have to be British to attend the meeting. Youíll find that the Brits are pretty friendly. But you do have to make reservations by contacting society president Ceri Dando at 01-387-761-0257 or Alicia McNiff at 765-4786.

Hope that helps.
