Good idea Kim. We can ask.

In January we are back at the Cavallo Star. Therese would rather have Tuesday 8 instead of Tuesday 15 which is in the Newsletter. Please reply which dates you can come.

Have you given consideration to start Café Italiano at 1800 instead of 1900?
Cold evenings.

We begin again with Café Italiano, 7 pm on Tuesday 18 September.
We meet at the Cavallo Star restaurant, Bubenbergplatz 8, upstairs.

Please reply if you can make it or if you would like to come next month on 23 October.

Also I would like to add you to the yahoo mailing list
Here we would advertise Italian-lanuage events around Berne, for instance movies.
Tell me if you need help to join it.

The next meeting is on Tuesday 23 October, and then we will meet Therese who has volunteered to lead this group. Thanks also to Angela Nierstrasz who was our previous leader. Note that we need attendees, otherwise it will again not work after a few months!

I look forward to seeing you

comment from a new member:

I note that the Italian cafe has been relaunched - that's great (actually that was what sparked my initial interest a few years ago). Depending on location I will definitely become a regular. However probably will not be able to start until second meet. Looks like only once a month? I shall be an enthusiastic supporter.
Best regards, Kim Titcombe

Do we want a meal? I suggest Casa d'Italia, the best ppizzas in Berne, in my opinion. Or Cavallo Star, closer to the railway station.

Or do we just want a good coffee. I don't know where - what are your suggestions?
