A month after moving to the US, I have managed to at least establish some contact with people on my own timezone who are not my colleagues.
I mostly used social networking sites that have some notion of local (Bay Area) community.
Not sure if Mastodon has anything like that. That would have to be an instance related to a specific geographic area, right?
Status update / continuing my thread about moving to the US:
It's been more than 3.5 months.
I've finally got my own apartment now (as opposed to temporary housing, for which I'm really grateful to $job).
Yesterday my furniture and household stuff arrived. Today I got an Internet uplink set up -- Gigabit fiber for the first time! <3.
Things are getting better.
Slowly, I'm arriving.
Expats, those who have left their home towns, travelers and freaks are especially welcome.
