How do you meet people, are there any events on that I can go to? Any clues would be great
Thanks

Would like to hook up with some westerners for a night out. Riyadh isn't exactly a wild town (Except for the drivers). Does a night out mean out of the country?

Anyway, there (really) is a big difference between Aberdeen (copper-wire-from-a-penny and 50p-with-a-spanner jokes aside) and Aberdeenshire.

Your comments indicate more about your childhood than mine I think ....

Ahah!!! A fellow teuchter!! At last, some one who I can converse with without the snide remarks about accents etc!!!!
