f2f in Tallinn

Post by ann2 » Wed Apr 15, 2009 9:40 am

Hi all,

I'm finally getting around to reporting on the AA contact I had a week ago. Three, count'em 3 different meetings with visiting AA members.

One lady came across my posting on this board and we pm'd each other, finally got together for dinner and sharing in the old town.

Another lady I met via the loners.org email list, an Estonian currently studying in England.

And she hooked me up with an English guy who was backpacking around and going to meetings in Estonian and Russian, sharing in English and not understanding a word anyone else said :-)

I had a meeting in a bar, where you could sit without being disturbed by the waiting staff for over an hour. I had a meeting on the sidewalk, at a cafe outside a bookstore. We read from the Big Book, from outside literature, and we related our stories and identified.

It was all within the space of one week. Wow, when my higher power wants to make a statement . . . grin.

Thanks to all of you for keeping me sane between visits.

For the benefit of those searching this forum for Tallinn, I just want to say that we have regular meetings these days - Tuesdays at noon.

With a big thanks to Ann ;-).

Ann and Steven: Thanks for your inspiration. If something can happen in Tallinn, there's plenty of hope for Dakar! :D
