Hi everybody, like I wrote in another thread, now that I live in Santiago I would love to get involved with the forum meet-up. I saw Ivar today and he thought it wasn't a bad idea ;-)

So, here my questions:

What time would be good one and do you prefer to go to a bar/café or to come to my place (http://egeria.house/contact/ map at the end of the page), which is just around the corner from Café Tertulia. I have a kitchen-living room on the ground floor.

So, can you just give me your input stating

Time: Morning/mid day/evening
Place: Cafe-Bar/ SYates' place

Thanks and see you soon, SY

I think late afternoon/ early evening would be nice.
Regarding place : Although I think you are wonderful and generous to open your house but would it not be too much an intrusion of your privacy? I mean there is a difference between the odd pilgrim who pm's you for help or the continuous and possible daily meet-up like it was at Tertulia. Just my humble idea :)

Sorry I'm a little confused is this a once off event or a daily occurrence for every forum Pilgrim when they arrive in Santiago?

Actually no, a) as it would allow me to do things in the house in case nobody comes ;-) and b) I moved to Santiago with the idea to help pilgrims/have an open home, so I am looking forward to them ;-)

The original forum meet-up was meant to be a daily or nearly daily event, lets see how this develops. At the moment it is about a regular event where forum pilgrims can meet and know when and where to meet when they are in Santiago.

SYates, I am very interested. I have been to the cafe Tertula many times but never met any forum menbers. Hopefully this can work out. Keep me noticed, I am happy you put up your initiative.

Edit: Very kind of you to offer your own place, and I would prefer that, because it would make it mor certain to meet forum members/someone in our mind of thinking, I believe.

I am really looking forward to meeting you SY, and a bunch of the crazy folks I've been chatting with here on the Forum. Hope you are still welcoming weary travelers when I get to Santiago again, sometime at the end of September. Who knows how long it will take this old woman to walk the Portuguese route? Took me 54 days to do the Frances from SJPP two years ago, and I was younger then.
So y'all behave out there! Don't make SY change her mind and lock her doors before I get there!
Shall I bring you something from North Carolina SY?
With love,
Coleen

I think that I would prefer late afternoon/early evening. As far as the place goes, I think that should be up to SYates. I can see the advantage for her to have it at her home, that way she wouldn't have to leave the house to go to the meeting place, only to find out that no one else showed up.

I would love this.

Late afternoon/evening would be fab.
Cafe - so as not to impinge on your privacy SY but to meet in your home would be so lovely too.

When do you anticipate this would start?
And where will you post final details? I am hoping to arrive in Santiago, coming from Porto in mid-July. Would love to meet everyone then :)

We're a diverse bunch, so it may be hard to pull something organized together - unless you are good at herding cats. I've been able to meet up with people in Santiago by arranging ahead of time, and that may be what will work best...or if you were to have an 'open house' at a set time that works for you.
Thank you for all you do SY!!

Exactly, every time I went to the Tertulia, I was the only forum pilgrim there :(.

... I would prefer your home so we can bring whatever food and drink we wanted to share (presumably)...
My thinking exactly - it would allow pilgrims with all kind of budgets to participate.

... When do you anticipate this would start?
And where will you post final details? ...
Next week will be taken up with paperwork (and the pilgrims that 'happen' to find me), but the week after I should be able to start with this. First I will post it here, but when it seems to work, I will try to convince @ivar to make it a sticky post in this sub-forum.

... - unless you are good at herding cats. ...
As a fellow feral cat - I think I am!

I think the Tertulia attempt has show we are ferral cats who prefer the comfort of a tablet to communicate that having to wash up and face up. ;)

Hi SY, what a lovely and generous idea to opening your home to us for a chat. Tertulia, as interesting a place this is...I waited many an evening to meet other forum members but never successfully.
I will be in Santiago July 1 to 15 and it would be lovely to meet up wherever you decide.
Leaving Lourdes this morning to start C. Aragonese.
Light and Love. Ingrid
