As the weather is getting warm with flowers in full bloom everywhere, it's perfect time for picnic. We held Couchsurfing Picnic events regularly in Shanghai. I miss the jovial spirit of sharing and love in open air badly. Back to Taipei, as a city ambassador I haven't contributed anything constructive to invigorate the CS scene @ Taipei. I hope it will be a promising beginning. A good friend of mine is visiting Taiwan, He uses Couchsurfing to run his camgagne as an independent condidat, to approach his fellow French expats and listen to their experiences and problems living outside France. He'd love to meet more couchsurfers during his stay in Taiwan, be them French people or not. But if you happen to be a French Couchsurfer and would like to meet him to understand more about his programs and ideas, it'll be an ideal occasion. (It's his CS profile and website: http://www.couchsurfing.org/people/chaker2012/ http://www.chaker2012.com/ ) I'm not interested in politics but it's unusual to meet a Couchsurfer politician and also a master of Chinese martial arts.
What to bring:
Food or drinks made by yourself or bought in markets. (Make sure you'll bring the garbage away with you.) Some picnic blankets and baskets.
Music players or instruments. I will bring my djembe. I'm only a rookie player and every participant is welcome to use it to produce lively rhythm for us.
Any kind of games, like chess, poker, kites, frisbee, juggling balls, diabolo etc. (I'll bring my flower sticks.)
Some papers or canvas, pens, paints to show your artistic passion.
Your body to move or dance or perform some martial arts. (Like some capoeira I'm learning recently.)
All the above are optional.
Most importantly, plz bring your "heart" and "smile" to spread happiness and love.
Welcome to bring your friends.
Time: April 28 (Sat.) 1pm to sunset
Place: Daan forest park, the entrance of Xinyi and Xinsheng S Road. Metro Brown Line DaAn station and then any buses running frequently on Xinyi Road.
RSVP to get my cell phone number and I can count the numbers of participants.
Note: I wish it's sunny next Saturday. If unfortunately it rains, we can still go to Ecole Cafe near Daan Park. http://ecole-cafe.blogspot.com/
