TA DEs meeting from the 28th to the 30th of September

Dear all

Come spend a weekend with the Milan DEs.

Rongpuk, FF, claudioborghi and carmen0806 (in cooperation with Stefano91 and Penelope from the Italian forum) are organizing a meeting in Milan the last weekend in September.

We will walk you around the hidden gems of Milan. Several guided itineraries will be available, but there will be also some time to spend together, as well as free time to explore on your own.

The meeting has been already announced on the Italian forum, and we look forward to a large attendance.

It's the second TA DEs meeting (the first was held in 2009), but the first open to foreign visitors.

We are in this forum to get advice from the locals, now you can see the beauties of Milan with them!

The program in detail will be outlined early September but it will be more or less along these lines:

I'll definitely come to the aperitivo. Unfortunately I won't be able to join the other activities (2 small kids to take care of during weekends...) but I'll gladly come and see you in person on the friday evening.

ciao
