New to Shanghai, looking to meet people!

hi all! my name is Aktina and I moved to Shanghai a few weeks ago. I am originally from Greece and have been living in Toronto and New York for many years before coming here. I work in the performing arts field, and I enjoy travels, movies, music and performance as well as meeting new people! I live in Xuhui. Please message me if you'd like to hang out, go see a show together, or if you know of any expat activities that you'd recommend. All the best! Aktina

I'm new to Shanghai, a trailing spouse and I'm also looking to meet people. I'm in my late 30's, no children, living in Pudong in Lujuizui, but I'm often in Puxi during the day. Would love to meet others for coffee, lunch, drinks, running buddies, etc!

I live in Pudong (near Lujiazui) but office is in Puxi. My work schedule is very flexible. I play badminton and go for lunch+Pools/Foosball with foreigner friends in Puxi. Feel free to contact me if you are interested. We can organize similar events in Pudong as well.
