Expats meeting at Marina Mall

Postby emzelc » Sat 23 Aug 2008 05:13 GMT

Hi, I am new to Abu Dhabi having moved here 4 weeks ago to join my husband who is working here.
I am currently not working and I have heard rumour that once a month expats meet at a coffee shop at Marina Mall to meet new people and make friends. Does anyone know if this is true and what time of the month does this happen?
Also does anyone have any suggestions where else I may be able to meet expats during the day as it can get lonely being on your own in a strange land?

Have you joined a club? What about going to a fitness class or something similar?
Good luck, but I don't think you'll be too lonely for too long - I think most people here are pretty friendly and open to new-comers because they remember what it was like when they were new too!
