Dont worry about list etc, if you have moved into the D Q you will have it all and more at your finger tips .
Unlike the rest of us, for us to try to get a invite into the embassy is like having a plie of Rocking horse Shxxt very hard to find !!

Oh, yeah... is the Cultural Center a mini-mall? it has tons of parking, but I can't quite tell from simply driving by.

Certain embassies (ie the british) seem to be very hard to try and enter for a soical evening it seems to be very clicky and on a need to know basis.
I know people that have been here a few months and have been to certain embasies more than once.
Where as some folk that have been here for a lot longer dont seem to get a look in.
Now the good ole USA embassy they always seem to have plenty of tickets available for social evenings.
As i said if you are working / living in the DQ you will have an interesting soicial life thats for sure.
