Spent the evening talking to strangers in Russian. Pretty exciting stuff considering that I was in DC. It was held at the Russian Cultural Center. One person picked up a quarter inch thick Russian phone book. About 90% of the people there were conversationally proficient, so we were able to talk in Russian instead of about Russian. Oddly someone recogized my mug and said, “Hey do you go to the vegetarian meetups?” They wanted to go to the Halloween party this Saturday, the same one that I’m scheduled to go to. Talk about coincidences. Oh the random people you meet when you go on meetups.
