I Finally Met Georgia!

I've been talking about Georgia Popplewell for months and linking to her Trinidad-based blog and podcast Caribbean Free Radio often. She introduced me to Global Voices by recruiting me as an author for the Caribbean region and then I started covering francophonia for them. It's been almost a year. We conversed and collaborated almost daily in the virtual world but had never met in person. I finally met her during her last trip to NY. We had a wonderful Brooklyn dinner and I got a great shot of her and her cousin and baker extraodinaire Christiana at Chez Oskar! (Georgia is the lady in blue.)

Of course we got to play the six degrees game as we discovered that she hung out in South Africa years ago with M, the very woman who introduced me to Fort Greene. Guess who was cat-sitting for M while she was off meeting Georgia in South Africa? Moi, of course.

I too met Georgia finally yesterday in Manhattan. She is a scream and loads of fun.

It was fun meeting you and Georgia.

Happy blogging.
