Thanks to katiemax....I never heard of this site before. In any case, I've been visiting Thessaloniki for 8 years and find it extremely difficult to meet people. I don't speek Greek and would love to get together every once in awhile with people who have lived here for awhile or those who have recently arrived. There are some great tavernas around for some cheap wine and food. Anyway,I'm here until the end of April.
