I’m lucky enough to have met a group of amazing North American girls here in Madrid (many through this very site, actually). To share the American love, I started the Facebook Group “Americanas in Madrid,” which has not only been a great resource for us like-minded ladies, but also a great way to make new friends. To maintain the integrity of the group — that is, strictly Americanas in Madrid — you can only join if you are either added by an existing member, or if you email firstname.lastname@example.org using the email tied to your Facebook account (after which you will receive an invite).
