On Saturday, 13 July, the Los Angeles Explorers Group celebrated a very special occasion: the 8th anniversary of the annual Los Angeles internationals potluck picnic. Eight years ago, Consuls Giuseppe Mattiolo and Keiko Benson, together with many other expats and global minds, met thanks to this picnic — since then, it has been an epic and unmissable activity for members in LA. The group came together in the Burton Chace Park and shared their home-cooked meals, while having fun with old and new international friends.
