Book Club

The 3rd Thursday of the month I usually go to book club. This month we read “One More Day” by Mitch Albom, who is also the author of “Tuesdays with Morrie.” It’s a easy read (I actually just read it in one evening) and very good.

We meet at an interesting cafe somewhere downtown – this time it was Whisk, which I have blogged about before. It is heaven via chocolate, and good food. It turns out Suzy’s husband knows the owner, who came out and had us sample a bottle or two of wine he was thinking of putting on the menu.

Catharina, who is Swedish and works at the consulate; Alicia, who is Australian and is an exporter; Suzy, who has a business taking people shopping; me; and Kerstin, who is German and works for TUV Rheinland.

This was a really fun night – we’re all expat women who work and have no kids (all of us but Catharina has a cat or two though) so it seems we have a lot in common. Catharina was surprised to meet someone who spent time in Sweden; we even showed everyone else how to play Kubb!
